    if we remove an electron from a hydrogen atom we get a positive hydrogen atom. but what about the law of conservation of energy after the removal of the electron from the atom. how is the energy conserved?

    potential energy.....I would think: that system basically is put in a state where it wants to find an electron.

    ...Dont you mean we get a proton and a neutron?

    A normal hydrogen atom is a single proton with one electron. If you have a proton and a neuton, it's a deuterium atom.

    No its just a proton because you removed the electron from the hydrogen atom .

    This is possible only in terms of stripping said atom within an EM field, so in that case, I would say the energy does indeed remain indefinitely potential.

    A "normal" hydrogen atom is a single proton with no neutons.
