Is the mass of a hydrogen atom different from the mass of an oxygen atom?

all atoms have different masses Mass of an atom is due to protons and neutrons present in an atom and number of proton is something that distinguish between atoms, therefore (MORE)

Atomic mass vs mass number?

atomic mass is the average relative mass (average mass of all the possible isotopes) mass number is the number of protons plus neutrons in an atom atomic number is the numb (MORE)

What is atomic mass?

Atomic mass is approximately the sum of the number of protons and  neutrons found in the nucleus of an atom. Basically atomic mass is  the weight of the neutrons and protons (MORE)

What does atomic mass do?

The atomic mass is equal to the number of protons plus neutrons. So if you know the atomic number then you can find out the number of neutrons Atomic # is the amount of Prot (MORE)

Does an atom have mass?

Atoms are matter, and all matter has mass. In that light, any (and every) atom has mass. Different atoms of different elements have different masses, as you would expect. As a (MORE)

What is larger the atomic mass or the atomic number?

The Atomic Number of an element is the number of Protons in its nucleus, that is what determines what element the atom is. The Atomic Mass is the total mass of Protons, Neutro (MORE)

How do you get atomic mass?

Atomic mass is found by adding together the individual masses of the numbers of protons, neutrons, and electrons in the atom. --> Atomic Mass = protons + neutrons
Thanks for the feedback!

What does atomic mass have to do with the charge of an atom?

First of all, the charge on most atoms is zero. A charged atom is called an ion, and is due to the atom gaining or losing electrons. I assume that you are referring to the cha (MORE)
