Since the atomic number Z of Chlorine is 17 and the mass number A is 35.45, we can calculate the number of neutrons N, as the difference between these 2:
Therefore the number of neutrons is:
Since we used the average atomic mass to calculate the number of neutrons, this is why we can conclude that most Chlorine atoms contain 18 neutrons.
