```Isotopic Notation
Chemistry 11
Definition of an Isotope

Isotopes are atoms with the same number
of protons but different number of
neutrons
A
Z
X
A = mass number
(the total number of protons + neutrons)
Z = atomic number
(the total number of protons)
X = element symbol
Understanding Isotopic Notation
46
21
Sc
46 = mass number
(the total number of protons (21) + neutrons (25)
21 = atomic number
(the total number of protons (21))
Sc = element symbol
In a neutral atom, the number of electrons (21) is equal to the
number of protons.

Atomic Mass




The atomic mass of an element represents the
average mass of all the isotopes found in
nature.
No element exists with only one possible
isotope.
Hydrogen has the smallest number of isotopes:
1H protium, 2H deuterium, 3H tritium.
Calculating Atomic Mass




If you look at your periodic table, for hydrogen, the
atomic mass is 1.0079 amu (atomic mass units).
The atomic mass is calculated by adding the % of 1H
mass found in nature to the % of 2H mass found in
nature plus the % of 3H mass.
% 1H + % 2H + % 3H = average mass (atomic mass)
Generally the formula used is:
% X + % Y + % Z… = atomic mass.
Mass Spectrometer

An instrument called the mass spectrometer
is generally used to determine the percentages
and individual masses of each isotope.
Sample Problem

Silver is found to have two stable isotopes, one
has an atomic mass of 106.904 amu and the
other weighs 108.905 amu.

The first isotope represents 51.82 % of the
mass of the element and the second
represents 48.18 %.

What is the atomic mass of the element silver?
Solution
The equation to use is:
%X + % Y = average atomic mass
And remember to convert your percentage amounts into
fractions (by dividing by 100) before you begin anything!
(0.5182) 106.904 amu + (0.4818) 108.905 amu = mass
55.398 amu + 52.470 amu = 107.868 amu
Now look at the periodic table to verify the answer.
Try This:
A sample of neon contains three isotopes, neon-20
(with an isotopic mass of 19.9924 amu), neon-21
(20.9939 amu) and neon-22 (21.9914 amu). The
natural abundances of these isotopes are 90.92%,
0.257 %, and 8.82 %.
Calculate the atomic weight of neon.
20.17 amu
