Isotopes have different numbers of electrons, but not different atomic numbers (numbers of protons) or they'd be different elements.

What element has the Same atomic number but different number of neutrons?

Almost all the elements have different isotopes having same atomic no but different mass no or neutrons.


What do you call the several different forms of an element having different atomic mass and number of neutrons?

We call these different "flavors" of an element the isotopes of that element.


Explain how the atomic mass of an element is affected by the distribution of its isotopes in nature?

Isotopes have a different amount of Neutrons. The atomic mass is the sum of Protons and Neutrons. Therefore having a different number of Neutrons makes the atomic mass greater. Or vice versa. Boom. Solved.


What is an isotope chemistry?

In chemistry isotopes are atoms of an element with different numbers of neutrons and may having have atomic number


How do you know the difference between isotopes and an element?

Isotopes are atoms of an element having different number of electrons.


Isotopes are atoms of elements which have...?

Isotopes are different forms of an element each having a different atomic mass number. Element isotopes have the same number of protons in the nuclei but a different number of neutrons.


What are atoms of the same element having different masses?

Isotopes are atoms of the same element (ie with the same number of protons and electrons) but with different atomic weights because they have different numbers of neutrons.


How many neutrons are in titanium atom?

Titanium is a chemical element with the symbol Ti and atomic number 22.There are different isotopes of Titanium with corresponding different number of neutrons. There are:Ti-44 ; having 22 neutronsTi-46; having 24 neutronsTi-47; having 25 neutronsTi-48; having 26 neutronsTi-49; having 27 neutronsTi-50; having 28 neutrons


Is an element a pure substance made up of two kinds of atoms?

No, an element is a pure substance having a specified atomic number. The atomic number is the number of protons in the nucleus of the atom. There may be isotopes of an element having different numbers of neutrons in the nucleus.


Define the term isotope?

Any of two or more forms of a chemical element, having the same number of protons in the nucleus, or the same atomic number, but having different numbers of neutrons in the nucleus, or different atomic weights.


Atoms of the same element having different sums of protons and neutrons are called?

Atoms of the same element having different sums of protons and neutrons are called isotopes. Isotopes of the same element have the same number of protons, but different numbers of neutrons.


What is the definition of isotopes?

isotopes are atoms of the same element, having same atomic number but different atomic masses due to the difference in the number of neutrons presentIsotopes are atoms that have differing numbers of neutrons, but the same number of protons.


Do isotopes differ from one another in their atomic number?

The definition of an isotope is that it is one of two or more atoms with the same atomic number (i.e. the same number of protons) but a different mass number (due to having a different number of neutrons).


Why do atoms of the same element have different masses?

Because they have different numbers of neutrons. They are isotopes of the same element, having the same number of protons, but different numbers of neutrons.


Why does chlorine have fractional atomic mass?

Chlorine naturally occurs with mixed isotopes, and the number is an average of the atomic mass of those isotopes, in the proportion they are present. The isotopes have the same atomic number (protons), but their mass number can be different due to the presence of a different number of neutrons. These atoms of an element having a different number of neutrons are called isotopes.



What nuclear particle determines the isotope of an atom?

The neutron; the proton determines the element of the atom, but different atoms of the same element can have different atomic masses, due to the different number of neutrons of the atoms. Atoms of same element having same number of protons but different number of neutrons are called Isotopes. Thus, neutron determines the isotope of an atom.


What differentiates an isotope of an element from any other atom of that element?

Isotopes are species of atoms having same atomic no. but different atomic masses. So an isotope has either lesser or more neutrons than the usual atom of the element ( often called the most abundant isotope).


What will be the no of neutrons protons of hg having mass no 200 atomic no 80?

The number of protons = the atomic number. The number of neutrons = the mass number - the atomic number Protons = 80 Neutrons = 120 Also, for extra information, not that you need it, the element would be mercury.


Which atoms that are same element and have the same number of protons but have different number of neutrons?

Isotopes are atoms of the same element, having the same number of protons but different number of neutrons.


What is 2 isotopes of an element?

the atoms of same element having the same no of protons but different no of neutrons are isotopes.



What element has 82 protons?

The number of protons that an element has defines what that element is, regardless of the number of neutrons it has. Therefore, the chemical element having 82 protons, which is lead, or Pb, can take many different forms. In fact, there are 38 different known isotopes of lead, ranging from having 96 neutrons to having 133 neutrons. Despite that, they are all still called lead.


How do isotopes of a given element differ from one another?

different isotopes of an element are those that are having different neutrons in their nuclei while having same number of protons .


How many neutrons are there in an element having a mass number of 52 and an atomic number of 22?

30. The Atomic mass is essentially the protons + neutrons. The Atomic number is the protons. Or the neutrons. Or even the electrons. With the exception of ions and isotopes, those numbers are all the same.
