Parts of An Atom
Neutrally charged Neutrons
Materials that hold on to their electrons very tightly, and this does not allow for them to pass through very well.
Protons have a (+) positive electric charge
Electrons have a (-)negative electric charge
Neutrons have are neutral and have no charge
A charged atom is called an "ion."
The charge of one proton is equal in strength to the charge of one electron
When the number of protons in an atom are equal to the number of electrons in the atom, the atom become neutral, and gives off no charge.
