2 How to represent an element? X A Z symbol of the element mass number atomic number Atomic Number, Mass Number and Isotopes Atomic number Z: number of protons in the nucleus Mass number A: the sum of the number of protons and neutrons 4 What is the number of protons, neutrons and electrons for the fluorine atom? F 19 9 The mass of an electron is so small we ignore it. Example: Z= number of protons =9 = number of electrons A= mass number=protons + neutrons = 19 neutrons = 19 - 9 = 10

3 Atomic Number, Mass Number and Isotopes (cont) Definition : Two Isotopes are two atoms that have the same atomic number (Z) but different mass numbers (A). E x a m p l e : Hydrogen has three isotopes H 1 1 1 2 1 3 H H Hydrogen Deuterium Tritium (0 neutrons) (1 neutron) (2 neutrons) 6 Example: What is the number of protons, neutrons and electrons for the isotopes of carbon below? 11 14 6 6 C C Atomic Number, Mass Number and Isotopes protons electrons neutrons 6 6 5 11-6= 6 6 8 14-6=
