Expert Answer:

Atomic structure of carbon:
             
The carbon atom has 6 protons, 6 electrons and 6 neutrons.   

Therefore,

  Atomic number [Z] =   no. of protons [p]   =   no. of electrons [e]

                              Z   =            6                   =               6

  Therefore, the atomic number of carbon is 6.


    And Atomic mass number [A] = no. of protons [p]  +  no. of netrons [n]
                                                 A  = 6  +  6
                                                 A  =  12
Therefore, the atomic mass number of carbon is 12.
