Expert Answer:

An atom of any element has the equal number of protons and electrons hence every atom of any element is the neutral atom. 
for example Cl atom, C atom, H atom, etc
 
When this neutral atom has completed its octet then it is called as a stable atom.
For example He atom, Ne atom, Ar atom.
