Unformatted text preview: 31. Which of the following are isotopes of element X, with atomic number of 9: X 19 9 , X 20 9 , X 9 18 , and X 21 9 . 33. Verify that the atomic mass of magnesium is 24.31 amu, given the following information: Mg 24 , mass = 23.985042 amu; percent abundance = 78.99% Mg 25 , mass = 24.985837 amu; percent abundance = 10.00% Mg 26 , mass = 25.982593 amu; percent abundance = 11.01% 35. Copper has two stable isotopes, Cu 63 and Cu 65 , with masses of 62.939598 amu and 64.927793 amu, respectively. Calculate the percent abundances of these isotopes of copper. 37. Strontium has four stable isotopes, Strontium-84 has a very low natural abundance, but Sr 86 , Sr 87 , and Sr 88 are all reasonably abundant. Which of these more abundant isotopes predominates?...
