calculate yhe total number of electrons and protons and nuetrons in NH4+and PO3-

Asked by mehrarora26 | 22nd Jul, 2015, 10:32: AM

Expert Answer:

In N atom there are 7 electrons, 7 protons and 7 neutrons.

In H atom, there is no neutron, 1 proton and 1 electron

In NH4+ there are 7+1+1+1+ 1 = 11 protons, 7 neutrons and 10 electrons since there is one electron less due to the positive charge.

In phosphorus there are 15 electrons, 15 protons and 16 neutrons.

In Oxygen there are 8 electrons,8 protons and 8 neutrons.

In PO3- , there are 40 neutrons, 39 protons and 40 electrons since there is one electron more due to the negative charge.
