Atomic weight

(Science: chemistry) The average weight of an atom of an element, i.e. The total mass of protons and neutrons in an atom. (chemistry) the ratio of the atomic mass of an element to half the atomic mass of carbon-12.A way of measuring atoms and molecules at the atomic level, where hydrogen, the lightest element in the periodic table has an atomic weight of 1.
