Whiat kind of information can be determined from a mass spectrum?
Solution : In the problem given, we have to identify the isotope of same element and tell what is the identity of the element whose isotopes you have identified. So, first we will discuss what is isotope and then we will identify the isotope of same element and find the identity of it. A pair of atoms are said to be sotope when they have s ame atomic number but different mass number. (a) hich two of the following are isotopes of the same element: Hence, according to the definition of isotope, the isotope of the same element is : As they have same atomic number - 16, and they have different mass numbers- 31 and 32. (b) What is the identity of the element whose isotopes you have selected 16 is the atomic number of element Sulfur, having chemical symbol S. Hence the identity of the element is :
