Keep answering like this, and you may win a Nobel Prize soon! If we have the same number of electrons and protons, the net charge will be zero. For example, if there are \(3\) protons and \(3\) electrons, the net charge will be \(\left(3 \times \left(+ C\right) \right) + \left(3 \times \left(- C\right) \right)\) \(= 3 C - 3 C = 0\)
We were earlier trying to understand what is the difference between atoms of different elements. We now know that it is because of the numbers of electrons and protons. For example, if Element A has \(1\) electron and \(1\) proton, and Element B has \(2\) electrons and \(2\) protons, they are both different elements.
We know that an atom has electrons and protons. How do you think electrons and protons are distributed in an atom?
