Bromine-79 isotope (Br-79 isotope, 79Br isotope) BROMINE-79 isotope is used for nan; Bromine-79 isotope is available to order from in Bromine-79 sodium bromide (NaBr) chemical form. Bromine is an active ingredient in four products; two products with multiple active ingredients and two products as the sole active ingredient. The multiple active ingredient products control mold, mildew, fungi, insects, and odors in exposed surfaces of bedding, mattresses, textiles, drapes, upholstered furniture, rugs, carpets, and storage areas.

Isotopes And Electron Arrangement

There are two different isotopes of bromine atoms. Under normal conditions, elemental bromine consists of molecules, and the mass of a molecule is the sum of the masses of the two atoms in the molecule. The mass spectrum of consists of three peaks:
Mass Relative Size
157.836 0.2569
159.834 0.4999
161.832 0.2431
a)What is the isotopic composition of each peak?
b)What is the atomic mass of each isotope?
c)Determine the average mass of Br2 molecule.
d)Determine the average atomic mass of a bromine atom.
e)What is the percent abundance of the two isotopes?
here is some of my work, im not sure if this correct, can someone help me get through the questions with explantons on how to do them.
(157.836 x 0.2569 + 159.834 x 0.4999 + 161.832 x 0.2431)/2 <- i think this gives me a mass
