1. Sodium has 20 isotopes and 2 isomers. 2. Only the isotope 23Na is stable. 3. The stable isotope 23Na and the radioactive isotopes 22Na and 24Na (these isotopes exist in traces) are natural isotopes.

How many neutrons does fluorine have?

10 neutrons, 9 electrons, and 9 protons are present in Fluorine-19, the only stable isotope. There are 18 known radioactive isotopes with other numbers of neutrons.

What element have 9 protons and 10 neutrons?

Giving a specific number of protons and neutrons specifies an isotope of an element. In this case, the isotope is the isotope of fluorine with an atomic mass of 19. Other isotopes of fluorine with different numbers of neutrons also exist, but are not nearly as common.

How many nuetrons does fluorine contain?

Although there are 19 forms of fluorine, known as isotopes and an isomer, only one exists in significant quantities. It is 19F, meaning that it has an atomic mass of 19. The atomic number of fluorine is 9. Therefore, the number of neutrons in a nucleus of an atom of this isotope of fluorine is 10.

Fluorine Form Molecules or Crystal lattices or exist as a single atom.

What is the number of isotope for fluorine?

From looking at the chart of the nuclides, you can determine that Fluorine has a total of 13 isotopes (F-15 through F-27). Only one of Fluorine's isotopes is stable (F-19) and makes up 100% of the naturally occurring fluorine. The other 12 Fluorine isotopes are all radioactive and have half lives ranging from 5 x 10E-22 seconds (F-15) to 1.83 hours (F-18).
