applications and examples of isotopes an isobars ?

Isotopes: (Have same atomic no.but different atomic masses) Examples are ->

Hydrogen ; 1H,2H ,3H , Carbon ; C-12 and C-14

Chlorine : Cl-35, Cl-37 ,

Uranium isotopes:  U-235 , U-238

Uses: 1. Carbon isotopes are used in carbon dating to determine the life span of organism.

2. Uranium isotopes are used in nuclear reactors as the source of energy.

3. Cobalt isotopes are used in cancer treatment while Iodine isotopes are used in treatment of Goiter .

And there are many more uses of isotopes in chemical and physical techniques like NMR, ESR spectrum etc.

Isobars: (Have different atomic no. but same atomic masses) examples are :

1) 18Ar40 and 19K40  2)  32Ce76 and 34Se76  3).26Fe58 and 27Ni58 etc

Uses: They are basically used in Meteorology and weather maps.
