Atomic mass = 121.8 amu The element is Antimony (Sb)

#### Work Step by Step

Mass of isotope 1 = 120.9038 amu = $m_{1}$ Relative abundance of isotope 1 = 57.4% = 0.574 = $x_{1}$ Mass of isotope 2 = 122.9042 amu = $m_{2}$ Relative abundance of isotope 2 = 42.6% = 0.426 = $x_{2}$ Atomic mass = $m_{1}$$x_{1} + m_{2}$$x_{2}= 120.9038 \times 0.574 + 122.9042 \times 0.426 = 69.3987 + 52.3572 = 121.8$ The element is Antimony (Sb)
