21. The atomic masses in the periodic table are not integral numbers. For example, carbon is listed as 12.01115 instead of 12.00000. Why? a. Our technology does not allow for exact measurement of such a small quantity. b. Atoms gain and lose electrons easily and that changes their masses significantly. c. Atomic masses listed in the periodic table are weighted averages of isotopic masses. d. Atomic masses are measured in real samples that are always contaminated with other elements. e. There is a theoretical uncertainty in the masses of atoms. 22. Given the information below, calculate the weighted average atomic mass (amu) of the element X. Isotope Abundance (%) Mass(amu) 221 X 74.22 220.9 220 X 12.78 220.0 218 X 13.00 218.1 23. Element X has three naturally occurring isotopes. The mass (amu) and % abundance of the isotopes are: 37.919 (5.07%), 39.017 (15.35%), and 42.111 (79.58%). What is the average atomic mass (amu) of element X? 24. The mass % of C in CH 4 is __________.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
