Atomic mass of an element can be calculated as summation of the mass of each isotope multiplied by their fractional abundance (%/100):
An element has four naturally occurring isotopes with the masses and natural abundances given here.
|Isotope||Mass (amu)||Abundance (%)|
Find the atomic mass of the element.
