    Answer:

    20 protons.

    Explanation:

    20 protons = 20 + charges

    18 electrons = 18 – charges

    The difference = 20 – 18 = +2

    The charge for this atom is plus 2

    It would be a calcium atom. This element is number 20 on the periodic table.

    Hope this helps!

    Answer:

    the number of electrons should equal to the the number of protons in a neutral atom

    if there is a inequality between the numbers it means the atom has a + or – charge

    The charge of this atom=+(2018)=+2
