Isotopes has similar chemical properties but different physical properties.

Reason is they have different numbers of neutrons, which affects the mass number. Mass number determines the physical properties such as boiling/melting/density etc (they have similar chemical properties because isotopes of an element have the same number of electrons as an atom of that element)
