Blue toruses = 36 protons
Red toruses = 18 nuclear electrons

Atomic number of Ar (18) = protons (36) - nuclear electrons (18)

The central rod of Ar36 analogous with Carbon 12 (stable) nucleus. Ar36 = C12 + 6 alpha particles

The central rod of Ar38 analogous with Carbon 14 (half life = 5700 y) nucleus. Ar38 = C14 + 6 alpha particles
