What happens to an electron if it looses or gains energy: As it looses energy it will drop to an energy level closer to the nucleus but as it gains energy it will move to an energy level away from the nucleus.

How do you figure out the atomic mass:

Do isotopes have different atomic masses or atomic numbers: atomic mass.

1st energy level holds 2 electrons 2nd holds 8.

Mass number atomic number = number of neutrons
