An atom is made up of three sub-atomic particles. These sub-atomic particles are neutron, proton and electron. Neutron is electrically neutral or has no charge on it. Proton has a positive charge and electron has a negative charges. The charges on an electron and a proton are equal in magnitude but opposite in direction. So, both sub-atomic particles, electron and proton, cancel the effect of each other. Therefore, an atom has no charge on it. Moreover, when an atom loses or gains electron, ions are formed.
