Isotopes are variations of the same element with the same atomic number but a different atomic mass. Isotopes of an element have the same number of protons but a different number of neutrons - which is why their atomic mass is different.

On the Periodic Table, the relative atomic mass is featured which is a weighted average from all the abundant isotopes of an element.

The isotopes of some elements occur naturally and are said to be 'stable'; others are unstable, meaning that they only exist in a state of decay.
