Reading the Periodic Table
* Atomic #: The number of _protons_ in an atom. It
equals the number of _electrons_ in a neutral atom.
* Mass number = __protons__ + neutrons
* # of neutrons = _Mass_#___ - ___atomic number_____
* Atomic Mass: The _average__of all naturally occurring
isotopes.
Observe the models of atoms at your Lab stations.
Use the results and your periodic table to
complete the chart and the following questions.

NOTES: Isotopes and Ions
Warm-up:
Isotopes:
 Isotopes - is a version of an atom with the same
number of PROTONS, but different number of
NEUTRONS.
-If an atom is an isotope you name it using the element
name followed by the mass number.
* Ex: carbon – 12 and carbon -14
-Writing Isotope Symbols:
1.
2.
3.
Write the atomic symbol for the element
To the top left of the symbol write the mass # of the isotope.
Beneath that (to the bottom left of the symbol). Write the atomic number of the element.
Ex: Label the following
Carbon-14 is written like this:

How many protons does How many protons does
Carbon-14 contain?
6
How many neutrons does
Carbon-14 contain?
14-6 = 8
Carbon-12 contain?
6
How many neutrons does
Carbon-12 contain?
12-6= 6
* Atoms as a rule are all neutral in
charge, meaning that the number of
protons and electrons in the atoms are
equal.
Ions:
Ions are charged atoms (+ or -)
Formed when an atom GAINS or
LOSES electrons
Ions
 Cations
 Positively (+) charged atoms
 Form by LOSING electrons
 Usually formed by metals
Examples Lithium - 7
+ Protons: 3
Neutrons: 4
Charge: 1+
Electrons: 2
Ions
 Anions
 Negatively (-) charged atoms
 Form by GAINING electrons
 Usually formed by nonmetals
 Examples
2-
Sulfur - 32
Protons: 16
Neutrons: 16
Charge: 2Electrons: 18

Atomic Mass Calculations
 Atomic mass is the weighted average of the
masses of all naturally occurring isotopes.
 Atomic Mass=
Σ[(Percent Abundance) x (Mass of Isotope)]
Σ = take the sum of; add them all up at the end!
 Sample Calculations together.. 
Atomic StructureInside the Nucleus
 Protons
 Positively (+) charged particles
 Equal to the atomic number
 Identity of atoms is based on # of protons in
Nucleus
 Contribute to the mass of the atom
 Proton mass = 1amu
 amu= atomic mass unit
Atomic StructureInside the Nucleus
 Neutrons
 Neutral particles (no charge)
 Help hold nucleus together; contribute to
stability
 Neutrons + Protons= mass number
 Neutron mass = 1amu
Atomic Structure-
Outside the Nucleus (Electron Cloud)
 Electrons
 Negatively (-) charged particles
 Responsible for the CHEMICAL PROPERTIES of
the atom
 In a neutral atom (no charge), protons=electrons
 Very little mass
 ~0 amu
