Differentiate betweem a.m.u(atomic mss unit ) & relative atomic mass?

Asked by simran2 | 20th Jul, 2010, 12:00: AM

Expert Answer:

The atomic mass is defined as the mass of an atom. It can only be one isotope at a time and is not an abundance-weighted average.

The relative atomic mass is the average of all the atomic masses of all the element's isotopes as found in a particular environment, based on its isotopic abundance
