    The atomic mass unit (amu) was standardized against the

    12C isotope of carbon (amu = 12).

    1 amu = 1.66054 x 10




    Average atomic mass

    the mass of the hydrogen atom (1H) is 1.0080 amu, and themass of an oxygen atom (16O) is 15.995 amu.

    . . .The mass of 12C is 12 amu, and that of 13C is 13.00335 amu.Therefore, the average atomic mass of carbon is:

    (0.98892)*(12 amu) + (0.01108)*(13.00335 amu) = 12.011 amu

    The formula wei ht of a substance is the sum of the

    atomic weights of each atom in its chemical formula.

    H2O has a formula weight of:

    * *. . .

    chemically bonded chemical formula is the molecular

    formula, and the formula weight is the molecular weight.

    Ionic substances are not chemically bonded and do notexist as discrete molecules no molecular wei ht

    Table salt (NaCl) has a formula weight of:

    Chemical formula of calcium chloride = CaCl2Molecular mass of Ca = 40.078 amu

    Molecular mass of Cl = 35.453 amu

    Therefore, the formula weight of CaCl2 = (40.078) +2(35.453) = 110.984 amu

    Therefore one mole of CaCl2 would have a mass of

    110.984 grams.
