Isotopes have the same atomic number, but different mass number.

Each chemical element is made up of atoms that have the same numbers of protons, but sometimes they have differing numbers of neutrons. These atoms are known as isotopes. The video above goes through a couple of examples of isotopes, and there are more for you to work through in the exercise worksheet below.
