The term isotonic may refer to;
- Isotonic (exercise physiology)Isotonic (exercise physiology)In an isotonic contraction, tension remains unchanged and the muscle's length changes. Lifting an object at a constant speed is an example of isotonic contractions. A near isotonic contraction is known as Auxotonic contraction....

- An isotoneIsotoneTwo nuclides are isotones if they have the same neutron number N, but different proton number Z. For example, boron-12 and carbon-13 nuclei both contain 7 neutrons, and so are isotones. Similarly, S-36, Cl-37, Ar-38, K-39, and Ca-40 nuclei are all isotones of 20 because they all contain 20 neutrons...
