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

46 21 Sc 46 = mass number (the total number of protons (21) + neutrons (25) 21 = atomic number (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
Write the symbol for the atom with an atomic number of 21 and a mass number of 48. Give the complete chemical notation for the nuclide with 23 protons, 26 neutrons and 20 electrons. Write the isotopic notation for Z = 46 A = 110 An atom containing 24 protons, 28 neutrons, and 21 electrons Titanium-50 48 Sc 49V3+ 110Pd 52Cr3+ 50Ti

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: 1H protium, 2H deuterium, 3H tritium. Its atomic mass is amu (atomic mass units). The atomic mass is calculated by adding the % of 1H mass found in nature to the % of 2H mass found in nature plus the % of 3H mass. % 1H + % 2H + % 3H = average mass (atomic mass) Generally the formula used is: % A + % B + % C… = atomic mass. An instrument called the mass spectrometer is generally used to determine the percentages and individual masses of each isotope.

Now look at the periodic table to verify the answer.
Atomic Mass Silver is found to have two stable isotopes, one has an atomic mass of amu and the other weighs amu. The first isotope represents % of the mass of the element and the second represents %. 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) amu + (0.4818) amu =? amu amu =? amu !! Now look at the periodic table to verify the answer.

PRACTICE PROBLEMS # 8 1. A sample of neon contains three isotopes, neon-20 (with an isotopic mass of amu), neon-21 ( amu) and neon-22 ( amu). The natural abundances of these isotopes are 90.92%, %, and 8.82 %. Calculate the atomic weight of neon. 2. There are only two naturally occuring isotopes of copper, 63Cu and 65Cu. Copper has an atomic mass of amu. Which is the most abundance isotope? 3. There are only two naturally occuring isotopes of gallium, 69Ga and 71Ga. Which is the most abundance isotope? 20.17 amu 65Cu = 30% & 63Cu = 70% 69Ga = 60% and 71Ga = 40%
