How many protons,electrons and neutrons are in hydrogen?
Question Date: 2020-03-14
Answer 1:

I recommend you to visit our link where we keep an interactive table of elements here.

Hydrogen has an atomic number "1", which means that it has 1 proton in the nucleus of every atom of this element. The hydrogen atom has also one electron, bound to the nucleus by the Coulomb force.

Most hydrogen atoms have no neutron, but rare isotopes of hydrogen, called deuterium and tritium, do have neutrons.

I recommend this link , where you can read and learn about the hydrogen atom.
