Dear friend,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am getting confused in this question;what i learned till now is thatnumber of proton+number of neutron=atomic mass. But while searching the net i got this equation

atomic mass = mass a x fract a + mass b x fract b. can any one tell me which is the correct (not approximate) method for finding atomic weight.

and my second question

isweight of proton+weight of neutron= atomic massis this equation correct

advance thanks for your help
