In this lesson, we will learn how to describe common properties of stable isotopes and use shell models to rationalize the existence of magic nuclei.
A nuclide is particularly stable if the number of protons or neutrons is equal to one of the magic numbers: 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82 and 126. A double magic nuclide is one in which the numbers of protons and neutrons are both magic.
Which of the following nuclides is double magic?
What is the difference between the mass numbers of the two most likely double magic isotopes of tin?
Which of the following is a stable nuclide?
Using the Periodic Table, identify which of the following is the most stable isotope.
Which of the following nuclides has an even number of neutrons?
Which of the following statements is true?
A nuclide is particularly stable if the number of protons or neutrons is equal to one of the magic numbers: 2, 8, 20, 28, 50, 82 and 126. These nuclides are termed magic.
Which of the following nuclides is not magic?
How many elements in period 4 of the Periodic Table have a magic number of protons?
There is one naturally occurring magic isotope of bismuth. What is the mass number of this isotope?
A nuclide contains
neutrons. Which of the following expressions is true for most stable nuclides?
