What does one determine an atoms atomic mass?

If you mean "how does one determine an atoms atomic mass?", then the answer would be to find a periodic table of elements where the whole numbers indicate atomic number and the other indicating atomic mass. Atomic number is generally described as the number of protons in a naturally occurring atom of a given element, and the atomic mass is the number of protons + number of neutrons in an atom.


Is the electrons the atomic number?
