(iii) Isotopes : The atoms of the same elements having same atomic number but different mass numbers are called isotopes, e.g. image003 and image004

(iv) Isobars : The atoms having same mass number but different atomic number are called
isobars, e.g.: image005 and  image006

(v) Uses of isotopes : (i) As nuclear fuel: An isotope of uranium (U – 235) is used as a nuclear fuel.
(ii) In medical field : An isotope of cobalt is used in the treatment of cancer.
