Atomic matter is a general term, and it speaks to an atom or group of atoms. It may possibly refer to the constituent components of atoms - protons, neutrons and electrons. Atomic weight is the weight of a "weighted average" of all the naturally occurring isotopes of a given element. Use the link to the related question for more information.
