North Carolina Essential Standard and Clarifying Objectives:

Chm. 1.1 Analyze the structure of atoms and ions.

            Chm. 1.1.1 Analyze the structure of atoms, isotopes, and ions.

         Characterize protons, neutrons, electrons by location, relative charge, relative mass.

         Use symbols: A=mass number, Z=atomic number

         Use notation for writing isotope symbols: 23592U or U-235

         Identify isotope using mass number and atomic number and relate to number of protons, neutrons, and electrons.

         Differentiate average atomic mass of an element from the actual isotopic mass and mass number of specific isotopes.
