If you divide the number of atoms of a single isotope by the total number of atoms, you get the ratio of that isotope. This tells you how common/uncommon that isotope is.

In a compound the component elements are chemically bonded together in a fixed whole number ratio and definite structure. In a mixture the components are not chemically bonded together, the ratio is variable, and there is usually not a fixed structure.

An important thing to understand here is that you wouldn't get a PhD in chemistry as a whole subject but you would get a PhD in a certain field of chemistry, like physical chemistry. Allow me to explain: I'm from the UK so the first thing you would do is get a degree in Chemistry or a related subject like Medicinal Chemistry or Biochemistry, whatever you like best. This would be called a BSc; Bachelor of Science meaning you have a degree in a science based subject. So you would have a BSc in Chemistry. Then you could go on to get a Masters, or an MSc for Master of Science. These degrees are normally more specific than BSc's so you would study a particular part of Chemistry and not Chemistry as a whole, for example, Analytical Chemistry. However, you can study an MSc in Chemistry as a whole which has a research basis. Then you would do a PhD. These are primarily research degrees which would involve a specific part of Chemistry and not as a whole subject. So you would have a really specific title.

Yes, the atomic number will always be a whole number.

Yes, a number in a ratio must be a whole number.

Simple whole number ratio implies that ratio of the elements in a compound is a whole number i.e. the ratio of elements bear whole number. For example in Cu2O, Cu and O combine in a simple whole number ratio of 2:1.

Every whole number can be expressed as the quotient or ratio of other whole numbers, and whole numbers ARE integers.

It is the ratio of one whole number to another whole number, which may be expressed as a fraction. The ratio (or fraction) may be simplified by dividing both numbers by the greatest common factor.

A whole number is an integer in chemistry. In chemistry, integers include negative whole numbers and zero. Answers in integer form are shown as whole numbers.

-- Any number that can be written as the ratio of two whole numbers is a rational number.-- Any whole number can be written as the ratio of that number to ' 1 ', so it's rational.

4.8 is the ratio 48/10 . You can never write 4.8 as a singlewhole number, simply because 4.8 is not a whole number.

It is 25 : 10
