Tips and Tricks on Nuclear Chemistry


Isotopes: Atoms of the same element having same atomic number but different mass numbers are isotopes.

Isobars: They are the nuclides with same mass number but different atomic numbers, i.e., isobars have different number of protons, neutrons but the sum of protons and neutrons is same.

Mass Defect: Mass defect is the difference between the expected total mass of the nuclide from the particles (protons, neutrons and electrons) present in it and its real mass. It is proved that the greater the mass defect, the greater is the stability of the atomic nucleus.
