# How To Calculate Electrons?

Published

on The smallest particles of substances are the atomic particles. After the evolution of the scientific researches, it is proved that the smallest particles are called the sub-atomic particles. There are three types of sub-atomic particles. They are protons, electrons, and neutrons. Their amount, reactivity and properties, decide the behavior of the substance. If you want to find the features of the element you need to know the number of the particles present in the component. Let's find out the methods to calculate the amount of the sub-atomic particle present in the substance.

Finding the number of particles is not that a hard task. Sometimes you need to look at the periodic table. And the answer will be there. Don't know how to find them from the periodic table? Let me show you the steps to find out the number of sub-atomic particles.

First get a correctly structured Periodic Table. In the table, the elements are organized initially by their atomic structure. On the table look for your component. The table is mainly separated into three group, i.e., Metals, Non-metals & metalloids (semi-metals). There are also elements which are alkali metals, halogens, and noble gases.

After you locate the element, look for its atomic number. You can find it in the upper left-hand corner of the square located above the element symbol. The atomic number tells you the number of protons present in the atom. For example, we take the case of Boron (B). The nuclear number of Boron is 5. So the number of protons present in an atom of boron is 5.

Now let's come to the part of the electron. Protons carry the +ve charge whereas the particles move more the -ve charge. So for a neutral atom, the number of protons is equal to the number of particles. If we can know the number of protons from the atomic number, then the particle-particle number of will be as same as the number of protons. In case if the nuclear-nuclear is high on any charge (May be positive or negative), it is considered to be in its ion state. In that case, the number of charge defines the number of protons or electrons present in the atom.

To know the number of neutrons present in the atom you need to know its atomic mass first. As we see the mass of the electron current-current in the molecule-molecule is negligible. So the mass of an atom entirely depends upon the number of protons and neutrons present. So if you know the number of protons of a particle and its atomic mass, then substitute the number of protons from the atomic mass. The result you got is the number of neutrons present in the molecule-molecule.

If you have an ion and wants to check its number of electrons and protons, first identify the net charge on the atom. An atom goes to its ion form only by the addition or subtraction of the particles. Remember that the number of protons present in a molecule is always constant. After you find your ionic element check it's atomic number on the standard form. The number will give you the number of protons present in the atom. Now substitute the proton number from the total charge of the molecule-molecule. The result you got will be the number of electrons.

I hope that you have a clear idea about sub-atomic particles (like Proton, Electron, and Neutron) and how to count them.
