The relative atomic mass, or atomic weight, of an element is the weighted average of the masses of the isotopes in the naturally occurring element relative to the mass of an atom of the carbon-12 isotope which is taken to be exactly 12.
Molecular weight calculation:
1.00794*2 + 15.9994 = 18.01528 g/mol
