Answer:

Of a nitrogen nucleus.............the total electronic charge is #+7xx1.602xx10^-19*C=1.12xx10^-18*C#............

Explanation:

The total electronic charge is #+7#. How do we know? Well, the atomic number of nitrogen is #7#, which specifies 7 fundamental, nuclear particles with a positive charge. Of course, electronic charge is balanced by 7 fundamental extranuclear particles with negative charge, 7 electrons conceived to whizz about the nuclear core. In #""^14N# what other nuclear particles do we have to consider?
