basically zero is neutral, because its nor positive nor negative. its also in between positive and negative integers.

If an atom has both positive and negative particles how can it be neutral?

Neutral is when the charge is zero. In the atom the sum of the positive and negative charges add to zero, thus making the atom neutral.

Is the charge on a neutral chlorine atom zero?

Yes. That is what it means to be electrically neutral.

How Can Atoms Be Neutral if they are made up of changed particles?

The Atom is neutral because the charged particles sum to zero,m thus neutral. The positive charges are in the nucleus and the negative particles are the electrons. The sum is zero and the atom is neutral.

There should be zero voltage between neutral and ground.

Why neutral have zero voltage?

Your question should read, 'Why does a neutral have zero potential?' 'Voltage' means 'potential difference', and you cannot have a potential difference at a single point. A neutral doesn't necessarily have zero potential although it is connected to earth (ground). This is because the potential of earth isn't literally zero; it's just considered to be zero, in the same way that sea level is considered to be zero in terms of height. Furthermore, there is often a voltage drop between the neutral and earth -in which case, the potential of the neutral can be several volts higher than the potential of earth.

Is negative zero a real number?

The object with zero charge is electrically neutral.

Why voltage at neutral in ckt is zero?

You really should be asking why the potential of neutral is zero. 'Voltage' means 'potential difference' which, by definition, cannot exist at at point. The reason is that the neutral conductor is earthed (grounded), and earth is, by general consent, considered to have a potential of zero volts. In practise, however, there is usually a small voltage drop between the neutral and earth, so it would be more accurate to say that the neutral's potential is close to zero.
