Question

I have to figure out the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons are in the following?

63 Cu  

I figured out that copppers atomic number is 29 which means there are 29 protons.  How do you figure out electrons and neutrons?

Step 1

Copper is an element having atomic number 29 and its mass number is given 63.

Step 2

Since, the number of protons in an element = atomic number of an element

Thus, the number of protons in Cu-63 = 29

Step 3

Also, in a neutral atom the number of protons = number of electrons o...
