1. Homework Statement
I need the mass of the nucelon to do my assignment...:confused:

2. Homework Equations



3. The Attempt at a Solution
I tried Wikipedia...and other sites on the Web...it says that the mass of the nucleon is on the order of 2000 times the mass of the electrons...so would it be good enough if I just take the mass to be equal to 2000 times the mass of the electron?

Thats a rather crude estimate. If you want more accurate values for specific nucleons try typing "Mass of Proton" or "Mass of Neutron" into google.
