Answer to Question #10464 in Inorganic Chemistry for Mona
share the same number of protons, each isotope differs from the others in its number
of neutrons. There are stable and radioactive isotopes. Chemical elements, as a rule, are a
mixture of isotopes- atoms with identical serial numbers (charges), but different mass numbers.
The greatest number of isotopes has a tin (Z = 50) with xenon (Z = 54), nine isotopes, cadmium
(Z = 48) and tellurium (Z = 52) each have eight isotopes, other elements have a smaller number
of isotopes. There are elements that have only one stable isotope, and they are simple. There
are F, Na, P, V, Mn, Au, Be,Al.
