The atomic mass of an element can be found on the Periodic Table.

###### Determining Atomic Mass

Concept #1: The atomic masses of elements can be found on the Periodic Table.

Example #1: Which of the following represents an element from the first column with the greatest atomic mass?

On the Periodic Table, the atomic mass is represented by the number with decimal places.

Practice: Which of the following choices has the greatest atomic mass?

Concept #2: Calculating Atomic Mass

Example #2: Calculate the atomic mass of gallium if gallium has 2 naturally occurring isotopes with the following masses and natural abundances:

Ga-69          68.9256 amu          60.11%
Ga-71           70.9247 amu           39.89%

Practice: Only three isotopes of magnesium exist on earth. 24Mg is the most common form at 78.70% natural abundance with a mass of 23.98504 amu, 25Mg has a 10.13% natural abundance, while 26Mg has a natural abundance of 11.17% and a mass of 25.98259 amu. What is the mass of the 25Mg isotope?

Practice: Silver has an atomic mass of 107.868 amu. The Ag-109 isotope (108.905 amu) is 48.16%. What is the amu of the other isotope?
