Problem

Consider the mass spectrometer show below.

A diagram shows a tube with a portion between magnets N and S. A sample enters the tube at one end and passes through the ionization stage and heated filament behind which is a connecting tube leading to a vacuum pump. The sample then passes through an accelerating grid with electrical charges; the beam of positive ions then passes through the magnetic field between the magnets, which causes separation of ions based on mass differences occurs. 37Cl+ and 35Cl- diverge and pass through a slit to reach a detector.

Determine whether each of the following statements is true or false.

For a given element, the number of peaks in the spectrum is equal to the number of naturally occurring isotopes of that element.
