Finding atomic mass?

  1. Nov 1, 2011 #1
    I have always been told that scientists such as Mendeleev used atomic mass to list the known elements of their time. I have always been curious as to how those early scientists actually determined the atomic masses of those known elements. What kind of experiment or process/principle was used?

    Thanks in advance!
