•Z (nuclear charge) = the number of protons in the nucleus of an atom •Z eff (effective nuclear charge) = the magnitude of positive charge "experienced" by an electron in the atom •Z eff increases from left to right across a period; changes very little down a column
Effective atomic number is equal to total number of electrons linked with central metal atom or ion in a complex plus the electrons donated by the ligand .
The atomic number is the number of protons in an atom. This determines the chemical properties of the atom. Protons have positive electric charge, neutrons are neutral, and electrons are negative. Normally, an atom has equal numbers of protons and electrons. An ion is a charged atom with more or fewer electrons than protons.
ATOMIC NUMBER: Designates the number of protons in a nucleus of an atom Each element has a characteristic atomic number (the same atomic # for ALL atoms of the same element) The number of electrons equals the atomic number in a neutral atom
Atomic Number • The number of protons in the nucleus is th e atomic number. • A neutral atom will have the same number of electrons as protons • The elements are arranged by chemistry into the Periodic Table. (by atomic number) Ions and Valence • Atoms with 1,2, 3, or 4 outer electrons may lose them and form positive ions (cations).
24 To find the number of protons (Z) in the nucleus (atomic number), we need to find the element on the periodic table. This allows us to calculate the number of neutrons (N) using N = A – Z, where Z is the mass number. For example, the element hydrogen (H) has an atomic number of 1.
Atomic weight of carbon is amu. The atomic weight is often specified in mass per mole. A moleis the amount of matter that has a mass in grams equal to the atomic mass in amu of the atoms (A mole of carbon has a mass of 12 grams). The number of atoms in a mole is called the Avogadro number, Nav = × 1023.
Effective atomic numbers of some human organ tissue substitutes such as polyethylene terephthalate, red articulation wax, paraffin 1, paraffin 2, bolus, pitch, polyphenylene sulfide, polysulfone, polyvinylchloride, and modeling clay have been calculated by four different methods like AutoZ eff, direct, interpolation, and power law.

Mass Number • The mass numbers or isotopes of an element are denoted as preceding superscripts. • For example the stable isotopes of the element oxygen are denoted 18O, 17O, and 16O. • Oxygen has an atomic number of 8 (eight protons). • The nucleus of .
The atomic number or proton number (symbol Z) of a chemical element is the number of protons found in the nucleus of an atom. It is identical to the charge number of the nucleus. The atomic number uniquely identifies a chemical element. In an uncharged atom, the atomic number is also equal to the number of electrons.
Today, we know that the atomic number gives the number of protons (positive charges) in the nucleus. This was the discovery made by Henry GwynJefferies Moseley. He found that certain lines in the Xray spectrum of each element moved the same amount each time you increased the atomic number by one.
