The most abundant isotope of Strontium has to be determined if the isotopes are 86 S r , 87 S r and 88 S r . Concept Introduction: The average weight (atomic weight) of Strontium is 87 .62 Equation for average weight is, average weight = ( %abundance isotop-1 100 ) × (mass of isotop-1) + ( %abundance isotop-2 100 ) × (mass of isotop-2) + etc

Solutions

Chapter 2, Problem 20PS
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The most abundant isotope of Strontium has to be determined if the isotopes are 86Sr, 87Sr and 88Sr.

Concept Introduction:

The average weight (atomic weight) of Strontium is 87.62

Equation for average weight is,

    average weight=(%abundanceisotop-1100)×(massofisotop-1) +(%abundanceisotop-2100)×(massofisotop-2)+etc
