An atomic mass unit (amu) is the smallest unit of mass in chemistry. It expresses the mass of atomic and subatomic particles, and is equal to exactly 1/12th the mass of a carbon-12 atom. Amu can also be identified as the unified atomic mass unit (u).
Grams are part of the metric system.
The formula for converting amu into grams is: 1 atomic mass unit = 1.66053886 x 1024 grams.
