The effect on the relative mases on the periodic table and the absolute masses of the elements if the Avogadro’s number is 1000 instead of 6.023 × 10 23 should be explained. Concept Introduction: The relative atomic mass is the mass of an atom compared with the 1/12 t h mass of the carbon 12 atom. Its unit is atomic mass unit and represented as amu. This can also be written in the units of g/mol that is mass in grams of 1 mol of the substance and known as molar mass. Absolute mass can also be known as actual mass which is equal to sum of number of protons and neutrons present in the nucleus of the atom.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The effect on the relative mases on the periodic table and the absolute masses of the elements if the Avogadro’s number is 1000 instead of 6.023×1023 should be explained.

Concept Introduction:

The relative atomic mass is the mass of an atom compared with the 1/12th mass of the carbon 12 atom. Its unit is atomic mass unit and represented as amu. This can also be written in the units of g/mol that is mass in grams of 1 mol of the substance and known as molar mass.

Absolute mass can also be known as actual mass which is equal to sum of number of protons and neutrons present in the nucleus of the atom.
