C) Tritium has one proton and two neutrons in its nucleus. number of protons plus the number of neutrons in each atom. For example, the mass number for carbon is 12 because it has six protons and six neutrons. PREDICT 2 The atomic number of potassium is 19, and the mass number is 39. What is the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom of potassium? Isotopes and Atomic Mass Isotopes (ı¯Јso¯-to¯pz) are two or more forms of the same element that have the same number of protons and electrons but a different number of neutrons.

The kilogram (kg), which is the mass of a platinum–iridium cylinder kept at the International Bureau of Weights and Measurements in France, is the international unit for mass. The mass of all other objects is compared with this cylinder. 06 qt) of water each has a mass of approximately 1 kg. An object with 1/1000 the mass of a kilogram is defined as having a mass of 1 gram (g). Chemists use a balance to determine the mass of objects. Although we commonly refer to “weighing” an object on a balance, we are actually “massing” the object because the balance compares objects of unknown mass with objects of known mass.
