Because an atom has the same number of protons and electrons which both have equal but opposite charges (electron relative charge= -1, proton relative charge= +1, neutron rela…tive charge= 0.) the atom as a whole has no electrical charge as both the electrons and the protons' charges balance each other out.

That would be 0 (electrically neutral).
All neutral atoms have no overall electric charge. In a neutral atom, the number of electrons equals the number of protons, and the charge balance means that there is no overa…ll electric charge on the atom. By losing or gaining electrons, atoms can become charged. In this case, the atoms will then have an overall charge, and they will be called ions.
The basic property of electric charges is that there are positive and negative charges created by positive and negative ions, which are atoms that have either lost or gained e…lectrons. Opposite charges attract each other and like charges repel each other. Also, charges are measured in units called Coulombs (C), and they can be detected by a device called an electroscope.
All atoms have a net zero charge because all atoms have protons (+ charge), neutrons(neutral no charge) and electrons(- charge). But when we put atoms into a solution it bec…omes ions (atoms with + charge and - charge).
Yes, they are called ions. Cations are positively charged and anions are negatively charged.
The "static" in static electricity describes that the charge is unmoving, or staying in one place. A movement of electrons is not occuring, however there is an electrical char…ge. The opposite would be current electricity that flows, and that you would find in electric cords, etc...
As a blanket statement all atoms are electrically neutral if you add up their protons and electrons they should equal, when they dont that is a ion. a positively charged atom …is a cation and a negatively charged atome is a anion. when an atom has a negative charge it has excess electrons.
The neutron, which is in the atom's nucleus.
If an electron is taken away by another atom or if it gains another electron.
the basic properties of an electric charge is that they posses but negative and positive charge when they gain and lose electron.
Electron: negative charge. Proton: positive charge. Neutron: neutral charge.
An atom is neutrally charged particle. This is because an atom contains equal number of protons[+ve] and electrons[-ve] which balance out to give a nuetal charged.Charged atom…s are called IONs.
because the number of protons (which have a positive charge of +1) and the number of electrons (which have a negative charge of -1) are the same. when number of protons = numb…er of electrons, overall charge = 0
The various properties of electric charge : 1.Additivity of charges 2.Charge is conserved 3.Quantization of charge
