Do you Know!!!!
Types of Isotopes are:
1. stable isotopes 😍
2. unstable isotopes .😧 Similarities in isotopes:Same number of proton/ electrons Same atomic number Same chemical properties properties of isotopes are due to the same atomic number.
Hydrogen Isotopes are:
protium,deutrium and tritium with same atomic number and different mass number or atomic weight.
Carbon isotopes are:
Carbon-12,Carbon-13 and Carbon-14.
ISOTOPES OF OXYGEN are:
Oxygen-16, Oxygen-17 and Oxygen-18.
Why isotopes are unstable 😔?
Isotopes are unstable because they can not hold together, they have too many or too few neutrons. The are called radio-isotopes. Large atomic nuclei, with more than 93 protons or neutrons, are unstable. Uranium is an examples of such elements.
