Weight of a neutron?

Hello all,
Does anyone know the weight of a neutron? Or, better yet, does anyone know offhand the weight of hydrogen subscript 2 (hydrogen isotope with two neutrons)?
Thanks!

Hello all,
Does anyone know the weight of a neutron? Or, better yet, does anyone know offhand the weight of hydrogen subscript 2 (hydrogen isotope with two neutrons)?
Thanks!
To clarify notation:

H1 = ordinary hydrogen (no neutrons)
H2 = deuterium (one neutron)
H3 = tritium (two neutrons)
 
Oh, oops! Looks like I had a discrepancy between the subscript and neutron number. I did mean tritium, but I'd be curious to know the weight of deuterium (the real H2) as well.

Great. I'll take a look.

Really, you should try to look this kind of information up yourself.
