Introducing Relative Atomic Mass
Relative atomic mass, also known as atomic weight, details the relative abundance of isotopes for an element found in nature and translates that into a number called the relative atomic mass. This is different from atomic mass. This video will explore more about relative atomic mass and how to calculate it.
Here is another example where you find the abundance of each isotope based on relative atomic mass.
