    Solution:

     In an atom of element the sum of number of protons and neutrons is called nucleons. Nucleons = P + n

    (protons + Neutrons)

    For chlorine -37, no. of nucleons = n +p

    n = (37 -17) +17; since, n = A +Z

    No. of nucleons in cl  37= 37

    Note: For an element number of nucleons is equal to its mass number. 

    Nucleons = Mass number
