The following diagram is a representation of 20 atoms of

a fictitious element, which we will call nevadium (Nv).

The red spheres are ^{293}Nv, and the blue spheres are ^{295}Nv.

(a) Assuming that this sample is a statistically representative

sample of the element, calculate the percent abundance

of each element. (b) If the mass of ^{293}Nv is 293.15 amu and

that of ^{295}Nv is 295.15 amu, what is the atomic weight of Nv?
