Hmmm I think I have not explained myself correctly.

But I *do* want to specify a 100% purified "element" made of a single isotope (10B)! :-D

Well, this is the problem: N(element) = 10.0129 and N(isotope) = 10. I expected that N(element) = 10. I do not want them to differ. Or well, I think I do not want them to differ, that is why I was asking if this is what I should expect.

I hope I made more sense now.

Cheers,

Sergio
