in an element on the periodic table, which number tells you the how many electrons are in that element??

  • chemistry -

    The atomic number tell you the number of protons in the nucleus and the number of electrons in the outer shells of a neutral element. The atomic number is the WHOLE number that runs sequentially beginning with 1 and increases by 1 from each element. These usually are color coded in a periodic table.
