Q1)How do I calculate the charge on an atom?

Ans) In science, a formal charge (FC) is the charge alloted to a particle in an atom, accepting that electrons in a substance bond are shared just as between molecules, paying little mind to relative electronegativity.

An option technique for allotting charge to an atom considering electronegativity is by oxidation number. Other related ideas are valence, which checks the quantity of electrons that an iota utilizes as a part of holding, and coordination number, the quantity of molecules clung to the particle of hobby

Q2)Do you get the charge by finding the difference between the protons or electrons?

Ans) No.you cannot get charged of atom by taking difference between electron and proton.if you want to find charge on ion then you can calculate this by taking difference.
