atomic number of iron is 26. that means it has 26 protons. and it has 28 neutrons. mass number of an atom is the number of protons and neutrons ie total number of nucleons in its atom. therefore mass number = proton number + mass number = 26 + 28 = 54

you have to add the number of neutrons to the number of protons to get the total mass number. so if you know the number of protons, subtract to get the mass number.
