Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Isotopes are compounds of the same element bearing same atomic number but different atomic mass. Atomic mass is given by adding the atomic number and neutron number of an element. Some elements have more than one number of neutrons. As such, they result in formation of isotopes. In most cases, the number of neutrons increases from the normal number.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
