Expert Answer:

isobars are elements with same mass numbers (atomic mass) and different atomic number (number of proton or electron)

isotopes are elements with different mass numbers (atomic mass) and same atomic number (number of proton or electron). Isotopes of an element have nuclei with the same number of protons (the same atomic number) but different numbers of neutrons.
