Solution: Write symbols for the following isotopes.Z = 58 and A = 140

Problem

Write symbols for the following isotopes.

Z = 58 and A = 140

Solution

In this problem, we are asked to write symbols for the given isotope.


Recall that the atomic mass of an element that you find on the periodic table represents the average masses of its isotopes

  • Isotopes represent atoms of an element that contain the same atomic number (same number of protons), but different mass numbers (different numbers of neutrons). 


To solve this problem, we use the AZX format in writing chemical symbols.
