Solution: Prior to 1961, the atomic mass unit was defined as 1/16 the mass of the atomic mass of oxygen; that is, the atomic mass of oxygen was defined as exactly 16. What was the mass of a 12C atom prior to 1961 if the atomic mass of oxygen on todays scale is 15.9994? (Mass of 12C on todays scale is 12.)
