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
