ISOTOPIC NOTATION isotopes are atoms with the same number of protons but different number of neutrons A Z X A = mass number (the total number of protons + neutrons) Z = atomic number (the total number of protons) X = element symbol

READING ISOTOPIC NOTATION 46 21 Sc 46 = mass number 21 25 (the total number of protons (21) + neutrons (25) 21 = atomic number 21 (the total number of protons (21)) Sc = element symbol In a neutral atom, the number of electrons (21) is equal to the number of protons.

Writing ISOTOPIC NOTATION 1. Write the symbol for the atom with an atomic number of 21 and a mass number of 48. 2. Give the complete chemical notation for the nuclide with 23 protons, 26 neutrons and 20 electrons. 3. Write the isotopic notation for a. Z = 46A = 110 b. An atom containing 24 protons, 28 neutrons, and 21 electrons c. Titanium-50 48 Sc 49 V 3+ 110 Pd 52 Cr 3+ 50 Ti

PRACTICE PROBLEMS 1. 196 Pt 4+ # p = _____# n = _____ #e- = _____ mass number = ________ atomic number = _______ atomic mass = ________ name of element = _______ 2. Indicate the appropriate atomic mass of an element with 30 protons, 30 neutrons, and 28 electrons. 78 118 74 196 78 195.1 amu platinum 65.39 amu

Atomic Mass The atomic mass of an element represents the average mass of all the isotopes found in nature. No element exists with only one possible isotope. Hydrogen has the smallest number of isotopes: 1 H protium, 2 H deuterium, 3 H tritium. Its atomic mass is 1.0079 amu (atomic mass units). The atomic mass is calculated by adding the % of 1 H mass found in nature to the % of 2 H mass found in nature plus the % of 3 H mass. % 1 H + % 2 H + % 3 H = average mass (atomic mass) Generally the formula used is: % X + % Y + % Z… = atomic mass. An instrument called the mass spectrometer is generally used to determine the percentages and individual masses of each isotope.

Atomic Mass Silver is found to have two stable isotopes, one has an atomic mass of 106.904 amu and the other weighs 108.905 amu. The first isotope represents 51.82 % of the mass of the element and the second represents 48.18 %. What is the atomic mass of the element silver? The equation to use is %X + % Y = average And remember to turn your percents into fractions before multiplying. (0.5182) 106.904 amu + (0.4818) 108.905 amu =? 55.398 amu + 52.470 amu =? 107.868 amu !! Now look at the periodic table to verify the answer.

PRACTICE PROBLEMS 1. A sample of neon contains three isotopes, neon-20 (with an isotopic mass of 19.9924 amu), neon-21 (20.9939 amu) and neon-22 (21.9914 amu). The natural abundances of these isotopes are 90.92%, 0.257 %, and 8.82 %. Calculate the atomic weight of neon. 2. There are only two naturally occuring isotopes of copper, 63 Cu and 65 Cu. Copper has an atomic mass of 63.55 amu. What is the natural abundance of each isotope? 3. There are only two naturally occuring isotopes of gallium, 69Ga and 71Ga. What is the natural abundance of each isotope? 20.17 amu 65 Cu = 30% & 63 Cu = 70% 69 Ga = 60% and 71 Ga = 40%
