There are 3 sub-atomic particles:

  • The proton (which has a positive charge)
  • The neutron (which has no charge)
  • The electron (which has a negative charge)


In the nucleus, you will only find protons and neutrons, therefore, the overall charge of any nucleus will always be positive.

The nucleus contains positive protons and neutral neutrons it therefore has an overall positive charge.
