A Hydrogen atom has one proton and one proton in it. There are no neutron in hydrogen atom. As a matter of fact, hydrogen is the only element whose atom does not have a neutron in it.
Hydrogen does have some isotopes with atoms that contain one or more neutrons in its atoms. The atom of most most common isotope of hydrogen called protium, which is really the common hydrogen, contains no neutron. The atom of a second isotope of hydrogen called deuterium or heavy oxygen contains 1 proton and 1 neutron. This isotope constitutes about 1 part out of 4000 to 6000 parts of normal oxygen.The atom of another isotope of hydrogen called tritium has 1 proton and 2 neutron. Tritium is a radioactive material and is used in making oh hydrogen bomb.
