Transcript
The nucleus, cont’d
 Recall that the number of protons in the
nucleus is given by the atomic number, Z.

This number identifies the type of atom.
 The neutrons play a smaller role in
determining the properties of the atom.

Their effect is mainly on the atom’s mass.
 The neutron number, N, is the number of
neutrons contained in a nucleus.
