Composition of the nuclei of two atomic species X and Y are given as under

  X Y
Protons = 6 6
Neutrons = 6 8

Give the mass numbers of X and Y. What is the relation between the two species?

1 Answer

Solution :-

Mass number of X: Protons + neutrons = 6+6 = 12

Mass number of Y: Protons + neutrons = 6+8 = 14

They are the same element, as their atomic numbers are the same.

They are isotopes as they differ in the number of neutrons and hence their mass numbers.
