Elements can exist in the form of different isotopes. Isotopes of the same element have the same number of protons in their nuclei but have different numbers of neutrons. The first gives them the same atomic number and chemical properties while the second gives them different atomic weights.

How are the isotopes of an element are alike and how are they different?

The isotopes of an element are alike in that they have the same number of protons, electrons, and the same chemical properties. The isotopes are different in that they have different numbers of neutrons and thus different atomic masses.


What isotopes are atoms of the same elements with different number of?

Isotopes are atoms of the same elements with different number of neutrons.


Are Atoms of different elements exactly alike?

No, atoms of different elements are not exactly alike.


How are two isotopes of the same elements different?

The isotopes can have different numbers of neutrons and mass.


How are isotopes of an elements are alike and how are they different?

Isotopes of an element have the same number of protons and elections but a different number of neutrons. This means there is no difference in the way that they react with other elements or compounds as the electron configuration has not changed. The only difference is their new atomic mass. eg. Cl has isotopes of cl35 and cl37 but they will form the exactly same compounds.


Isotopes of an element have different?

Isotopes of elements have differing numbers of neutrons.


How are the isotopes of an element that are alike and how they are different?

What contains isotopes?

elements are isotopes, when different atoms of the same element have different number of neutrons




Why the mass number of the same atom of an element is not constant?

Since you have isotopes of elements. Isotopes are elements with different number of neutrons hence why the different atomic masses for the same elements.



Can isotopes of the same elements have different number of neutrons?

Such isotopes not only can but must have different numbers of neutrons.


Are isotopes of the same element chemically alike?

Excepting the isotopes of the first elements in the periodic table they are considered as having identical chemical properties.

What is the different of isotopes than the same elements?

Isotopes have the same number of protons and electrons but the number of neutrons is different.


How are isotopes different than naturally occurring elements?

Isotopes of an element have different masses because their nuclei have different numbers of neutrons.


Isotopes are atoms of the same elements that have different?

isotopes are atoms of the same elements that have different amounts of neutrons. there fore a different mass number than would be seen on the periodic table



Why do isotopes have different masses?

the differences in neutrons of the elements



What are the elements which have isotopes?

All elements have isotopes, but not all elements have naturally occurring isotopes.
