Textbook Problem

Write the atomic symbol ( Z A X ) for each of the isotopes described below.

  1. Z= 6. number of neutrons = 7
  2. the isotope of carbon with a mass number of 13
  3. Z=6,A= 13
  4. Z=19,A=44
  5. the isotope of calcium with a mass number of 41
  6. the isotope with 19 protons and 16 neutrons

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The atomic symbol of the isotope having Z = 6 and number of protons = 7 should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

The general atomic symbol of an element is:

A Z X

Where A is mass number of an atom, Z is atomic number, and X is the atomic symbol of an element.

The number of protons of an atom is equal to the atomic number of an atom. For a neutral atom, the number of protons and neutrons are same whereas the mass number of an atom is total sum of number of protons and neutrons of an atom.

Explanation

The general atomic symbol of an element is:

A Z X

Where A is mass number of an atom, Z is atomic number, and X is the atomic symbol of an element.

Since,

Atomic number = 6

So, ...
