#### Question

If bromine atom is available in the form of, say, two isotopes ""_35^79Br (49.7%)" and """_35^81Br (50.3%), calculate the average atomic mass of bromine atom.

#### Solution

It is given that two isotopes of bromine are ""_35^79Br (49.7%)" and """_35^81Br (50.3%)

Then, the average atomic mass of bromine atom is given by:-

79xx(49.7/100)+81xx(50.3/100)

=3926.3/100+4074.3/100

=8000.6/100

= 80.006 u

= 80 u (approx)

Is there an error in this question or solution?
