How Many Protons, Neutrons, and Electrons Are in Common Elements?
ES0501  Reading the Periodic Table

The interactive model doesn't allow you to build atoms with more than 10 protons. To find out how many protons, neutrons, and electrons are in these larger atoms, you need to read the information from the Periodic Table of Elements.

Examine this explanation of the symbols and numbers displayed on the periodic table. Consider the data you collected in using the model and how the same information can be gleaned from the periodic table.
