## How do Potassium-39 Potassium-40 and potassium-41 differ from each other?

They are different in their masses or mass number. Potassium- 39 has an atomic mass of 39 amu or mass number is 39, Potassium- 40 has an atomic mass of 40 amuor mass number is 40, and Potassium- 41 has an atomic mass of 41 amuor mass number is 41. The three isotopes have different numbers of neutrons.

### What is the difference between potassium-39 and potassium 41?

Since K is atomic number 19, it has 19 protons. It would need 20 neutrons to get to K 39. So K 41 has 19 protons and 22 protons. The difference between each of those isotopes is 2 neutrons.

### Why is potassium-39 the most abundant?

All potassium atoms have 19 protons in the nucleus. The most common isotope of potassium is potassium-39. This means it adds 20 neutrons to the 19…

## What is the average atomic mass of potassium if we find 93.12% of potassium-39 and 6.88% of potassium-41?

Calculate the atomic mass of potassium if the abundance atomic masses of the isotopes making up its naturally occurring samples are as given below. potassium-39relative abundance- 93.12% atomic mass- 38.964 amupotassium-41relative abundance- 6.88%atomic mass- 40.962 amu. Niamat K.

Why is potassium-39 the most abundant in nature?

### Why does potassium 40 have a different mass number for potassium-39?

This difference is enough to make potassium 40 unstable. The reason for this is that protons, like neutrons, like to exist in pairs in a nucleus. Potassium 40 contains odd numbers of both – 19 protons and 21 neutrons.

### What is the difference between K 41 and K?

K-41 is one of the naturally occurring isotopes of potassium. Use the periodic table to explain how the structure of K-41 differs from the normal K atom. K-41 has a total of 24 neutrons and normal K atom has 22 neutrons. K-41 has a total of 22 neutrons and normal K atom has 20 neutrons.
