Answer

Atomic mass is the average mass in amu (atomic mass units) of the atoms of a particular element based on the relative abundance of the various isotopes. It is numerically equivalent to the mass in grams of one mole of that element. It is computed by summing the products of the individual isotopic masses and their corresponding fractional abundances.
