Atomic Number, Isotopes and Relative Atomic Mass

Learning Goals:

  • Define isotopes as atoms of the same element whose nuclei have different numbers of neutrons and therefore different atomic masses
  • Define a radioactive isotope as an isotope whose atomic nucleus is unstable
  • Explain qualitatively the concept of relative atomic mass
