How many protons are in Titanium
All titanium atoms have 22 protons in their nuclei -- that's what it
means to be titanium. 76% of titanium atoms have 26 neutrons in them,
and stable titanium atoms have between 24 and 28 neutrons. Adding
neutrons to nucleus does not change its charge and so does not change
the number of electrons orbiting around the nucleus. The chemical
properties of titanium depend almost entirely on the electrons in
orbit, and so that's why the number of protons in the nucleus defines
which element it is.
