Storyboard Text

  • Today, we will be discussing the composition of an atom.
  • Neutrons are subatomic particles with no charge.  Neutrons can change the mass of an atom without changing the element as they are about the same weight as protons.
  • First of all, there is the proton.  Protons are positively charged subatomic particles.
  • Protons determine the atomic number an ultimately what element a specific atom is.
  • Electrons are negatively charged subatomic particles that determine the electrical charge of an atom.  In a neutral atom, the number of electrons is the same as the number of protons.
  • Neutrons can change an atom's isotope.
