The nucleus of the H atom is neutral when it has two electrons and one proton (when forming a covalent bond) or it has one electron and one proton.

Nucleus itself is never neutral.

Could you tell me why, please?

Protons and neutrons
What are charges of these particles? Any chance their combination can be neutral?

The charges of protons are positives and the neutrons have no charges. Yes, If neutrons would have had the same number of negative charges as protons have in the nucleus.

I'm sorry, you contradict yourself. Neutrons are neutral. They have no overall charge. If they did, they would not be neutrons.

Now coming to the main point, the H atom is neutral when it has two electrons and one proton (when forming a covalent bond) or it has one electron and one proton?

Context or situation is missing. Is the concern, how the Hydrogen atom is combined in a molecule? Is the concern, instead, just Hydrogen atom by itself, or Hydrogen, the diatomic molecule by itself?

Maybe just give the clarification asked of you.

Hydrogen atom is what?
One proton and one electron.
Hydrogen atom, if exist that way, neutral.

Diatomic Hydrogen molecule is what?
Two protons and two electrons.
The diatomic molecule is neutral.

Something else? Describe the condition or situation and maybe one of the more expert members will discuss.

sir from your point of view hydrogen atom is neutral but here question is about nucleus. Nucleus have protons and nucleus. Protons have positive charge whereas neutrons are neutral, so net charge is positive. That is why, nucleus of an atom can never be neutral.
