In a nuclear reaction, the atoms would split differently. However, in a purely chemical reaction, there is no difference.

Oh shoot! I got the answer too late, my friend told me since Cl37 is has a greater mass number it would react more slowly than Cl35 since it is heavier.

They are different isotopes of the same element....I would start there.
