2.1 PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE

Storyboard Description

We have produced short comics related to the subject of chemistry that relate to the number of protons, number of nucleons, and isotope. Created By: MURFIQAH & ELHAMALEEYA

  • PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE
  • (1) mei lin: guys ! let’s talk about what we learned today in chemistry class
  • (3)anna : yeah sure aniq! lets get it
  • (2) aniq : great idea ! lets get started . anna , do you want to join us ?
  • PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE
  • (1) mei lin: aha! aniq , what do you know about proton number?
  • 4) for example , if number of protons hydrogen is 1 then number of electrons hydrogen is also 1
  • (3)anna :YES ! also in neutral atom , number of protons is equal to number of electrons
  • (2) aniq : as we know , proton number is the number of protons in the nucleus of each atom . they also known as atomic number
  • PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE
  • (3) mei lin: ohhh don’t worry , let me tell you about nucleon number . Nucleon number is the sum of the number of neutrons and protons in an atomic nucleus. They also known as mass number .
  • (1)anna : hey aniq , what are you thinking about ?
  • (2) aniq : nah , im just need more explainantion about nucleon. Can both of u explain to me?
  • PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE
  • (3)mei lin : Ermm..guys , how about isotopes ?
  • (2)anna : ouhh! that’s easy , u just need to use the formula number of protons plus number of neutrons .
  • (1)aniq : oh I see … then , may I know how to calculate the number of nucleons ?
  • PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE
  • (3)mei lin : oh … HAHA ok now I remember.
  • (2)anna :yes.. there are many examples of isotopes which are carbon-12 , carbon-13 , carbon , carbon-14 and more .
  • (1)aniq : oh yea , isotopes are the members from one family that come from an element that have the same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons .
  • PROTON NUMBER, NUCLEON NUMBER, AND ISOTOPE
  • (3)mei Lin: Ok dude! have a great day!
  • (2)Anna : ouhh alright ! gonna see u again aniq..goodbye !
  • (1)Aniq:ouhh alright guys I nedd to go home first.So see you tomorrow!
  • (6)mei lin : YESS! Also iodin-131 is used in medicine to diagnose and treat cancers of the thyroid gland .
  • (5)anna :Yup. Also.. carbon-12 is used as a standard for measurements of atomic weight .
  • (4)aniq : Alright so.. lets talk about the uses of isotopes in daily life. Like we use cobalt-60 to treat cancer & so on ...
