carbon 12 13 and 14 are the three isotopes of carbon. All carbon atoms have 6 protons but the number of protons can vary.

The number is the Atomic Mass, or the sum of the protons ans neutrons.

Carbon 12 (the most common) has 6 protons and 6 neutrons.

Carbon 13 has 6 protons an 7 neutrons

Carbon 14 has 6 protons and 8 neutrons and is radioactive.

What is the difference between carbon 13 and carbon 14?

Carbon-13 and Carbon-14 are both isotopes of the element Carbon (which has 12 neutrons). An isotope is defined as an atom of an element that has the same number of protons, but a different number of neutrons. Thus, Carbon-14 has one more neutron than Carbon-13. For reference, when we say carbon, we speak of carbon-12, so carbon-13 and carbon-14 are both isotopes of carbon-12, with the first having one more neutron than carbon-12 and the latter having two more neutrons than carbon-12.
