It is called an isotope.
Its a normal atom if it have same protons, neutrons, and electrons to the one of the periodic table. If it have more or less neutrons than normal then its an isotope. If it have more protons than electrons then its a positive ion. If it have more electrons than protons then its a negative ion. An ion its a charged atom, more or less electrons than " normal " Isotopes its an atoms with the same number of protons, but different number of neutrons.
Before we tackle isotopes and neutrons, lets talk about protons. The number of protons in an atom determines the elemental identity of the atom. Only that. Now to the question. Atoms of a given element have a specific number of protons in the nucleus, but can have a modest variety of numbers of neutrons in their nuclei. Let's look at hydrogen. Hydrogen is identified by the fact that there is a single proton in the nucleus. Most hydrogen is just that. But some hydrogen has a neutron stuck to the one proton in the nucleus. This creates another "flavor" of hydrogen. It's another isotope of hydrogen. We have the original isotope of hydrogen (with one proton and no neutron) and the isotope with the one proton and one neutron. Now we look at the last and most unusual isotope of hydrogen. It has the one proton and two neutrons. Hydrogen has three isotopes, and each has the same number of protons (each isotope is hydrogen) and each has a different number of neutrons: zero, one and two. Heavier elements have varying numbers of neutrons in combinations with there protons. This creates a number of different isotopes for each and every element. It is the variable numbers of neutrons that can hang out with the protons in a given element's nucleus that give rise to the different isotopes of that element. Our friends at Wikipedia have some details. A link is provided.
Oxide is the name of oxygen when it is found in a compound with another element :)
The short answer is yes. The long answer is that isotopes have different numbers of neutrons than other isotopes of the same element, so when expressing the mass of an isotope, you don't take an average; you just add the number of neutrons and the number of protons. However, that number is not entirely accurate since the mass of a proton and a neutron are very slightly different. So, if you want to be very exact, then no, the mass of an isotope is not a whole number, but it is very, very close.
under normal conditions, chlorine is a gas, so it has no texture
Isotopes of an element differ from each other by having different numbers of neutrons. For example: 1H (hydrogen), 2H (deuterium), 3H (tritium) are isotopes. They have the same number of protons (1) but different numbers of neutrons (0, 1, and 2 respectively).
An atom of a certain element with a different number of neutrons compared with the common form of the element is called an isotope. Isotopes have the same number of protons and electrons in an atom, but a different number of neutrons (which means that they have a different atomic mass number).
An isotope of the element. The mass number is the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus.
an atom of an element that does not the comman number of electrons is an isotope. for example cabon-12(has 12 neutrons) is a very common element but carbon-14(has 14 neutrons) is much rarer
It is normal for the isotope of the element helium. 2He4 isotope has 2 protons, 2 neutrons and 2 electrons.
It is hydrogen element. It is tritium isotope of hydrogen.
An isotope is an element that has lost or gained neutrons. Isotopes have the same amount of protons and electrons but have a different number of neutrons. The less neutrons the lighter the isotope, the more neutrons, the heavier the isotope. An ion is an element that has lost or gained electrons. Ions have more or less electrons than protons and have a normal amount of neutrons. The more an atom has the more negative it is, the less the more positive it is.
Isotopes are atoms that have the same number of protons, but different number of neutrons in the nucleus of the atom. So the Carbon atom normally has 12 protons and 12 neutrons, but a few carbon atoms have 12 protons and 14 neutrons. The number of protons in the nucleus and electrons in the shell determine the properties of the element, but the extra neutrons can cause the element to be a little heavier or lighter than normal.
Yes. Isotopes are simply normal elements with a different number of constituent neutrons in their nucleus. All isotopes have a nucleus with an identical number of protons to its element.
yes,because in isotopes neutrons differ from normal element.
An atom of the same element with a different number of neutrons is called an isotope.If the element loses/gains a proton, then the element changes, but a different number of neutrons simply changes the isotope of the element in question. For instance:Nitrogen-14 (atomic mass 14, normal Nitrogen) has 7 protons, electrons, and neutrons. If we add a proton and an electron, then it changes to Oxygen-15, which is unstable, and therefore radioactive. However, if we add a neutron to our Nitrogen-14, it becomes Nitrogen-15, which just happens to be a stable isotope (and in fact makes up 0.37% of the Nitrogen in the air).Finally, if we add a Proton/Electron and a neutron to Nitrogen-14, we get Oxygen-16, which unlike Oxygen-15, is perfectly stable (and it better be, as Oxygen-16 makes up about 99% of the Oxygen we need to survive).
Isotopes have the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons. Different isotopes of a single element are on the same position on the periodic table of elements. The existence of isotopes was first suggested in 1913 by a radiochemist named Frederick Soddy.
