Question

how many nucleons are there in 56^Fe

check_circleAnswer
Step 1

An atom is mainly composed of three sub-particles; electrons, protons and neutrons. These particles are arranged in a certain way in the atom and provide electrical neutrality to the molecule. Electrons are placed in different energy levels of an atom.

Step 2

The number of protons is an atom is called as atomic number. For a neutral atom, the number of protons is always equal to number of electrons hence atomic number is equal to number of electrons for a neutral atom.

Step 3

The sum of number of protons and neutrons is called as mass number or nucleon number of an...
