Where are protons, electrons, and neutrons found in an atom?

Expert Solution
Summary Introduction

To review:

The location of electrons, protons, and neutrons in an atom.

Introduction:

Atoms consist of three subatomic particles called electrons, protons, and neutrons. An atom is divided into two parts, namely the nucleus and the extranuclear part. The total positive and negative charge in an atom are equal and, so, it is electrically-neutral.

Explanation of Solution

The nucleus of an atom contains protons and neutrons. The charge of the proton is positive and the neutron does not carry any charge, that is, it is neutral. Thus, the nucleus bears a positive charge.

The extranuclear portion of the atom contains electrons, which means that the electrons are located outside the nucleus and revolve around the nucleus in three-dimensional spaces called orbitals...
