Titanium Protons Neutrons Electrons (And How to Find them?)

Titanium Protons Neutrons Electrons

Titanium has 22 protons, 26 neutrons and 22 electrons.

But how will you find the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in Titanium (Ti)?

Well, it is very easy to find the protons, neutrons and electrons of titanium atom.

Here I have given a very simple method for finding the protons, neutrons and electrons of titanium atom.

Let’s dive right into it!

Finding the Protons, Neutrons and Electrons in Titanium

How to find protons?

  • The number of protons can be found by knowing the atomic number of that atom. [1]

How to find neutrons?

  • The number of neutrons can be found by subtracting the atomic number from its atomic mass.

How to find electrons?

  • For a neutral atom, the number of electrons can be found by knowing the atomic number of that atom.

Let’s calculate the number of protons, neutrons and electrons in titanium.

#1 Number of Protons in Titanium

If you have a periodic table with you, then most of the answers are in front of you.

You can see the elements, their atomic number and their atomic mass from the periodic table.

Now here our element is Titanium (Ti).

titanium protons

So from the above periodic table, you can see that the atomic number of titanium is 22.

As the atomic number of titanium is 22, it has a total of 22 protons in its nucleus.

Thus, the number of protons in Titanium is 22.

#2 Number of Neutrons in Titanium

In order to find the number of neutrons of titanium atom, you should know its atomic mass first.

The number of neutrons in titanium can be obtained by subtracting the atomic number from its atomic mass.

The atomic mass of titanium is 47.867 u (which you can round it to 48). [2]

So from this atomic mass (i.e 48), you have to subtract its atomic number (i.e 22).

So you will get 48 – 22 = 26.

Thus, the number of neutrons in Titanium is 26.

#3 Number of Electrons in Titanium

titanium electrons

For a neutral atom, the number of electrons and the number of protons are the same.

Here, the titanium atom is a neutral atom.

So the number of electrons in titanium is equal to its number of protons (which is also equal to its atomic number).

In the beginning, we have found that the number of protons in titanium is 22.

Thus, the number of electrons in Titanium is 22.

Summary

Number of Protons in Titanium

  • The number of protons can be found by knowing the atomic number of that atom.
  • Number of Protons in Titanium = Atomic number of Titanium = 22

Number of Neutrons in Titanium

  • The number of neutrons can be found by subtracting the atomic number from its atomic mass.
  • Number of Neutrons in Titanium = Atomic mass of Titanium – Atomic number of Titanium = 48 – 22 = 26

Number of Electrons in Titanium

  • For a neutral atom, the number of electrons can be found by knowing the atomic number of that atom.
  • Number of Electrons in Titanium = Atomic number of Titanium = 22

I hope you have understood the simple method for finding the protons, neutrons and electrons of titanium atom.
