Caption: The difference between Ions and Isotopes using Hydrogen atom (with titles). Although the number of protons in an atom never changes, some atoms do have electrical charges, because they either gain or lose electrons. Such atoms are known as ions. If an atom gains an electron it will have a negative charge and be referred to as an anion. If an atom loses an electron, it will have a positive charge and be referred to as a cation. The number of neutrons in an atom can also change. Two atoms with a different number of neutrons are called isotopes. For example, two isotopes of hydrogen are said to exist when one, commonly known as deuterium, contains not only one proton, but one neutron.
