Proper Chemical designation?

  1. Jul 25, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    write the "proper chemical designation" for the following isotopes
    a. uranium-238
    b. carbon-14
    c.polonium-210


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    would i just state number of protons, electrons and neutrons
    uranium-238 carbon-14 polonium-210
    p-92 p-6 p-84
    e-92 e-6 e-84
    n- 238-92=146 n 14-6=8 n-210-84=126

    IS THIS HOW TO SHOW "PROPER CHEMICAL DESIGNATION" OR IS THERE A DIFFERENT WAY
