Introduction:

Atomic number: The atomic number (represented by the letter Z) of an element is the number of protons in the nucleus of each atom of that element.

Mass number: The mass number (represented by the letter A) is defined as the total number of protons and neutrons in an atom.

The composition of any atom can be illustrated with a shorthand notation called A/Z format. Both the atomic number and mass are written to the left of the chemical symbol. The "A" value is written as a superscript while the "Z" value is written as a subscript.

Mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons.

Symbol of elements.

1. Writing the symbol for an element with 28 protons and 30 neutrons:

Atomic number (Z) = 28

Mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons.

Mass number (A) = 28 + 30 = 58

Symbol of element is given by,

2. Writing the symbol for an element with 22 protons and 21 neutrons:

Atomic number (Z) = 22

Mass number = number of protons + number of neutrons.

Mass number (A) = 22 + 21 = 43

Symbol of element is given by,
