- Is gram atomic mass, atomic mass(of an element) represented in grams, or the mass of one mole of an element
It is stated that the gram atomic mass of an element is its atomic mass represented in grams. The gram atomic mass of sodium is said to be 23g (isn't this number way to big to represent the mass of an atom?!) but if its the mass of one mole of sodium it makes sense(but won't that be molar mass). I searched it up and I kept seeing both definitions used interchangeably so I am not too sure which is correct.
