Isotopes of an atom have the same number of
protons but a different number of neutrons.
The mass number of isotopes is also different
since it is the sum of protons and neutrons.
There are over 300 naturally occurring

Organic Chemistry is the branch of chemistry
that studies hydrocarbons
Hydrocarbons are covalent compounds containing
carbon and hydrogen
A nonpolar bond is formed between hydrogen and
carbon because they have si
