I'm new to the subject and I'm having a question. I have a MS of peptide fragments. I just learned about a,b,c ions etc. In my diagram it shows only b ions. I don't understand the following:
On one peak it says b5 -H2O+1
I understand it this way: It's the mass of the b5 ion plus the mass of one h2o molecule (~18u). Is that correct? Or in other words: What does the +1 at the end mean after the H2O?
If I'm in the wrong forum for this I'm sorry.
Thanks for your help in advance.
