nuclide

 [noo´klīd]
a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number, and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 sec).

nu·clide

(nū'klīd),
A particular (atomic) nuclear species with defined atomic mass and number.
See also: isotope.

nuclide

/nu·clide/ (noo´klīd) a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number, and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 sec.).

nuclide

[no̅o̅′klīd]
Etymology: L, nucleus, nut kernel
a species of atom characterized by the constitution of its nucleus, in particular by the number of protons and neutrons. Thus, Co-59 and Co-60 are both isotopes of cobalt and are each nuclides. Co-60 is a radionuclide because it undergoes radioactive decay.

nuclide

A single isotope; an atom with a specific atomic number, mass number and energy level.

nu·clide

(nū'klīd)
A particular (atomic) nuclear species with defined atomic mass and number.
See also: isotope

nuclide

An artificially produced radioactive isotope of an element. Many of these are used in medicine as tracers or for RADIOTHERAPY.

nuclide

a species of atom characterized by the charge, mass, number and quantum state of its nucleus, and capable of existing for a measurable lifetime (usually more than 10−10 s).
