carbon-12 vs. carbon-13. How many protons, neutrons, and electrons do those 2 atoms have?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Carbon-12 has 6 protons neutrons and electrons, carbon-13 has 6 protons, 6 electrons, and 7 neutrons.

That's it. In terms of structure, where are those 3 pieces located?

I have no idea.

Hint: They can either be located in the nucleus or orbitals!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Are neutrons in the nucleas and protons and electrons in the orbitals?
JFraser
  • JFraser
protons and neutrons are both big, heavy objects...
anonymous
  • anonymous
So carbon-13 would be heavier since it has 7 neutrons....?
JFraser
  • JFraser
true, and where are those neutrons and protons found?
anonymous
  • anonymous
They're found in the nucleus, right?
JFraser
  • JFraser
Correct. The protons and neutrons provide (nearly) all the atom's mass located at the nucleus, while the electrons occupy the empty space around the nucleus in their various orbitals.

So the answer would be something like this..? Carbon-12 has 6 protons, neutrons, and electrons. Carbon-13 has 6 protons, electrons, and 7 neutrons. So Carbon-13 would be heavier since it has 7 neutrons. Neutrons and protons are found in the nucleus. The protons and neutrons provide mostly all of the atom's mass located at the nucleus, while electrons occupy the empty space around in the nucleus in various orbitals.
