In the question "Which atomic property is different in each isotope of an element?" The correct answer is the neutron and mass number. The isotopes of an element are two or more forms of the same element that contain the same number of protons but different number of neutrons in its nucleus, and hence differ in relative atomic mass but not in chemical properties. Therefore, the isotopes of an element that have different numbers of electrons and protons, but different number of neutrons and different mass number.
