mam, can you briefly explain about isotopes and isobars for me?

Atoms of the same element can have different numbers of neutrons; the different possible versions of each element are called isotopes. For example, the most common isotope of hydrogen has no neutrons at all; there's also a hydrogen isotope called deuterium, with one neutron, and another, tritium, with two neutrons.
Isobars are nuclei of different elements having the same mass number but different atomic number.
