What is the mass defect law?

The mass defect law defines the difference between the mass of an atom and the sum of the masses of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus. The difference is expressed in atomic mass units.


What is the mass defect?

If you add the exact mass of the protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom you do not get the exact atomic mass of the isotope. The diference is called the mass defect. The difference between the mass of the atomic nucleus and the sum of the masses of the particles within the nucleus is known as the mass defect.

How you calculate mass defect?

For an atom... ( proton mass * number of protons + neutron mass * number of neutrons + electron mass * number of electrons ) - mass of atom in neutral state = mass deficit


What is a unit of mass that describes the mass of an atom or molecule it is exactly one twelfth of the mass of a carbon atom with mass number 12?

The answer is 1 and the atom would be a hydrogen atom.


What is heavier one atom of carbon or one gold?

The atomic mass of Carbon is 12.0107 The atomic mass of Gold is 196.96657 So an atom of Gold is about 16 times heavier than an atom of Carbon.


How is the mass defect calculated?

What is the mass number of carbon atom?

Carbon is a non metal element. Mass number of it is 12.


How many times an atom of sulfur is heavier than an atom of carbon?

Sulphur has a molar mass of 32.065. Carbon has a molar mass of 12.01. 32.065 / 12.01 = 2.67. So an sulphur atom is 2.67 heavier than an carbon atom.


What is atomic mass of an atom?

It's the mass of the atom, usually specified in atomic mass units where one amu is 1/12th the mass of a carbon-12 atom.


What is the mass in grams of 1 atom of carbon?

1 mol of carbon atoms is 12.011g. Mass of 1 atom of carbon = 12.011/(6.02x1023) = 2.0 x 10-23g


What is relationship between atomic mass and average atomic mass?

The average atomic mass is the ratio of the average mass of one atom of an element to one twelfth of the mass of an atom of carbon-12. It is, the mass of an atom of the substance, rescaled so that carbon-12 would have a mass of 12.

What is the mass of 1 atom of carbon?

the atomic mass carbon is 12.011 g/mol 12.011/mol = the mass of one atom 12.011/6.022x10 raised to the power of 23 this equals 1.994520093 x 10 raised to the power of -23 this is the mass of one atom of carbon in grams.


A carbon atom of mass number 12 and a carbon atom of mass number 14 are?

Isotopes. Iso = same, as in the # of protons. Radioisotope is more accurate.


What isotope is used in defining the atomic mass unit?

Carbon-12. One Carbon-12 atom is given a relative mass of 12, so a single atomic mass unit is 1/12th the mass of a carbon-12 atom.
