Problem 36P

Which statements about protons are false?

(a) Protons have about the same mass as neutrons.

(b) Protons have about the same mass as electrons.

(c) Some atoms don't have any protons.

(d) Protons have the same magnitude of charge as neutrons but are opposite in sign.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 36P

Protons are located in the  nucleus of atoms, together with any neutrons also present in the atom. Protons have a positive (+1) charge, which balances the negative (-1) charge of the electrons that surround the nuclei of atoms.

(a)protons have  mass slightly less than that of a neutron.

(b)This explains why the mass of a proton seems excessive compared to an electron. Quarks are never found alone - which is why we normally discuss atoms in terms  of protons, neutrons and electrons - these are, for most intents and purposes, the constituent part.

(c)false all the elements have at least one proton.

(d)Protons and electrons have charges of the same magnitude but opposite sign. b. Protons have about the same mass as neutrons. ... Protons and neutrons have charges of the same magnitude but opposite sign.
