This is Carbon-12 (12C) it has a mass of exactly 12 universal atomic mass units. It serves as the standard for the universal atomic mass scale.

If you look up carbon on the periodic table, you will find that it says 12.011. This difference is because a small amount of carbon has a seventh neutron, which is averaged into the atomic weight given on a periodic table.

# What is the atomic number of an atom that has 6 protons 6 neutron and 6 electron?

6 which is Carbon

Carbon

# If a certain atoms has 6 protons 6 electrons 7 neutrons what will be its mass number?

If you're asking about atomic mass then the answer would be 13. Protons + Neutrons = Atomic Mass

# A carbon atom has 6 protons 7 neutrons and 6 electron What are the mass number and atomic number for this atom?

Mass number = 13 Atomic number =6

# A carbon atom has 6 protons 7 neutrons and 6 electrons What are the mass number and atomic number for this atom?

Mass number = 13, Atomic number = 6

# What atom has 6 protons and neutrons?

That would be a Carbon atom.

# If an atom has 6 protons and 6 neutrons how many electrons will it have if it is a neutral atom?

It will have 6 electrons since an atom is neutral when its number of protons is the same as its number of electrons .

# If carbon atom has 6 protons 7 neutrons and 6 electrons What are the mass number and atomic number for this atom?

atomic number = 6; atomic mass number = 13

carbon

# What does the atomic number of 6 tell about its protons neutrons and electrons?

it tells us that the number of protons and electrons is equal to 6 and says nothing about protons

# If an atom has 6 protons 8 neutrons and 6 electrons what is the atomic mass of the atom?

The atomic mass is the number of protons, plus the number of neutrons. In this case, 8 + 6 = 14 . Furthermore, the six protons (atomic number) tells me that this is carbon

Carbon :)

# What is the atomic mass of a atom that has 6 neutron 6 protons and 6 electron?

12 this is carbon and the mass of protons plus the mass of neutrons always equals the atomic mass.

# What if an atom has 6 protons 8 neutrons and 6 electrons what is its atomic mass?

This is an radioisotope of carbon - 14 C.

# What is the atomic number of an atom if you have 6 protons 8 neutrons and 6 electrons?

The atomic number of an element is the number of PROTONS that atom has, so in this case, 6 :)

# What atom has 6 protons 8 neutrons and 6 electrons?

Because the number of protons (atomic number) of an atom NEVER, NEVER changes, you simply find the element on the periodic table using the number of protons they give. If the

# If a boron atom has 5 protons 6 neutrons 5 electrons it has a mass number of?

11 = 5p + 6n (the electrons are not counted as their mass isroughly 1000 times smaller)
