Unit 2 ( Isotopes Problem Set 2-2 1. Which of the following are isotopes of element X, with atomic number of 9: [pic],[pic],[pic], and [pic]. 2. For each of the following isotopes, write the nuclear symbols: a. Cu-63, Cu – 65 b. C-12, C-14 c. Mg-24, Mg-25, Mg-26 d. Ne-20, Ne-21, Ne-22 3. Verify that the atomic mass of magnesium is 24.31 amu, given the following information: [pic], mass = 23.985042 amu; percent abundance = 78.99% [pic], mass = 24.985837 amu; percent abundance = 10.00% [pic], mass = 25.982593 amu; percent abundance = 11.01% 4. Naturally occurring neon is a mixture of three isotopes with the following masses and abundances: Mass Number Atomic Mass % Abundance 20…show more content…
5. Nitrogen has two naturally occurring isotopes N-14 and N-15, whose atomic masses are 14.0031 and 15.00001, respectively. The atomic mass of nitrogen is 14.0067. What are the percentages of each of the isotopes? 6. Copper has two stable isotopes,[pic]and [pic], with masses of 62.939598 amu and 64.927793 amu, respectively. Calculate the percent abundances of these isotopes of copper. 7. Chromium has four naturally occurring isotopes: chromium – 50 (4.35% at 49.946 amu) chromium – 52 (83.79% at 51.941 amu) chromium – 53 (9.50% at 52.941 amu), and chromium – 54 (2.36% at 53.939 amu) Calculate the average atomic mass of
