Isotopic mass and Natural Abundance Isotopic mass and Natural Abundance W Atomic mass is the average of the isotopic masses W A = Σ f i a i is the natural abundance of isotope i a i is the mass of isotope i W Need another equation 1 = Σ

Example Example W Boron has 2 isotopes: 10 B with mass 10.0129u 11 B with mass 11.0093u W What is the natural abundance of 10 B? W Solution 10.81 = f 10 (10.0129) + f 11 (11.0093) 1 = f + f 10.81 = f(10.0129) + (1-f)(11.0093) f= 0.1991 or 19.91%

Organic Compounds Organic Compounds W Compounds that contain carbon except for certain simple inorganic compounds Oxides (CO, CO 2 ) Carbonates and bicarbonates Carbides Carbonic acid W Called “organic” because first noticed in organic material Most biologically important molecules are organic or based on organic compounds Many organic compounds never found in nature
