```Symbols for Isotopes
Isotopic Symbol
• X = element symbol
• A = mass number
A
Z
X
C
Typical Isotopyic Symbol
• [# of protons (p) + # neutrons (n)]
• Z = atomic number [# of protons]
• N = # of neutrons
• A-Z=N
• C = Overall Charge

F
Flourine Isotopyic Symbol
Important Equations
• How to find protons:
• Atomic Number = # of Protons
• Mass Number: Weight of an Atom = Protons + Neutrons
• (P + N = MN)
• How to find neutrons:
• Mass Number – Atomic Number = Neutrons
• (N = MN – P)
• How to find Electrons:
• Protons + Electrons = Net Charge of atom
• P+ + e- = Net Charge
• Electrons are always negative
Mass Number Equation
• A = Mass Number
• Z = Atomic Number
•
A - Z = N (Number of Neutrons)
• If you subtract Z from A then you find the number of
neutrons in an atom
Build an isotopic symbol for
an atom that contains:
19 electrons
19 protons and
20 neutrons
