Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of

We all know that there exist isotopes for elements. In order to make these isotopes stable there is requirement of certain number of neutrons. Due to this number of neutrons vary in atoms. For instance, Carbon-12 has six neutrons, and it is stable. Carbon-14 has eight neutrons and it happens to be radioactive.
