ISOTOPIC NOTATIONisotopes 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.

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 1.0079 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:

% 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 # 8

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, 63Cu and 65Cu. 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

65Cu = 30% & 63Cu = 70%

69Ga = 60% and 71Ga = 40%
