Examples of Isotopes and Their Uses?


The most common isotopes in existence are hydrogen isotopes, some of which are deuterium and tritium. An isotope is one of at least two atoms having the same atomic number but different numbers of neutrons.
Q&A Related to "Examples of Isotopes and Their Uses?"
An isotope is an atom of a given element with a different mass. this means it must have a different number of neutrons, as changing the amount of protons would change the element.
For instance, Uranium has an atomic weight of 238.03. An isotope of this element
Seven different isotopes of carbon exist. All of them have six protons in their nuclei, but the number of neutrons differs between them. Two of these, carbon-12 and carbon-13, are
Isotopes are atoms of the same elements that have a different number of neutrons. For examples, Carbon-12 has 12 protons and neutrons put together(6 neutrons and 6 protons) Carbon
1 Additional Answer
Isotopes are atoms that have more neutrons than other atoms of the same element and, therefore have greater mass. The most common isotope is carbon-12.
