If bromine

Answer :

We know that upper digit in the symbol of an isotope represents its mass (which is the same as its mass number). Now:

(i) The mass of isotope is 79 u and its abundance is 49.7%.


(ii) The mass of isotope is 81 u and its abundance is 50.3%.


So, Average atomic mass of bromine = 79 ×


=


= 39.263 + 40.743


= 80.006


= 80u


Thus, the average atomic mass of bromine is 80 u.
