Numbers of this size are too small for of To overcome this problem a system practical use. relative atomic masses using “atomic mass units” was devised to express the masses of elements using simple numbers. 7 .

12 6 C 8 .The standard to which the masses of all other atoms are compared to was chosen to be the most abundant isotope of carbon.

A mass of exactly 12 atomic mass units (amu) was assigned to 12 6 C 9 .
