Definitions for "Stable isotope"
An isotope that is not decaying over time in contrast with radioactive isotopes.
An isotope of an element that is not radioactive.
Isotopes are atoms of the same element that differ in the number of neutrons contained in the atoms' nuclei. Unstable ‘radioisotopes’ will emit neutrons, protons, or electrons, decaying quickly to stable products. Stable isotopes such as 12C and 13C decay very slowly because their particular combinations of neutrons and protons are stable.
