1) What is an Isotope?

Isotopes are atoms of the same element that have different numbers of neutrons but the same number of protons and electrons.

Examples of Isotopes:

Element Isotopes
Hydrogen 1H (A=1), 2H(A=2) and 3H(A=3).Protium(A=1) , deuterium(A=2) and tritium (A=3). Hydrogen is the only element whose isotopes have unique names.

U (A=239)
Oxygen 16O(A=16), 17O (A=17), and 18O(A=18).

Standard Notation of Isotopes: Also known as AZE notation 'A' is the mass number, 'Z' is the atomic number and E is for element. 

It is to indicate the mass number (A) with a superscript at the upper left of the chemical symbol and to indicate the atomic number with a subscript at the lower left.
