A Carbon atom with 12 protons and 12 electrons would have an overall charge of zero. Protons are positive and electrons are negative therefor: positive 12 plus negative 12= 0
Positive: 54.545454545455 %
Answer #6 | 03/12 2015 08:33
Firstly, carbon dont have 12 elctrons and protons . it have 6 protons and Electrons,(12 is its atomic mass, not atomic number) . The overall charge will be zero, as the electrons have negative and protons have positive, the number of electrons and protons are also same, i.e. 6+(-6)=0 6-6=0 0=0 Where 6+ represents number or protons, and 6- represents number of electrons. Hope you understand...!!

first carbon has 6 protons and six electrons so its overall charge is the number of valance electrons multiply by the atomic weight (approximate the atomic weight)or it also could be done with this the atomic number multiply by the atomic number with the half of the other element below plus the atomic number and all divided by 2
