1 Answer

Solution :-

(a) Isotopes: Isotopes are atoms which have the same number of protons, but the number of neutrons differs. This leads to the variation in mass number too.

Example: Carbon molecule exists as 6C12 and 6C14 but when their electronic configuration is noticed, both have K-2; L-4

(b) Isobars: Isobars are atoms which have the same mass number but differ in the atomic number. The electronic configuration of an isobar pair is as follows,

Example: Electronic configuration of 20Ca40 - K-2; L-8; M-8; N- 2 Electronic configuration of 18Ar40 - K-2; L-8; M-8
