If bromine is available in the form of, say, two isotopes 7935Br (49.7%) 8135Br (5,3%) calculate the average atomic mass of bromine atom.
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
Thus, the average atomic mass of bromine is 80 u.
