Unformatted text preview: i. Atomic mass is the avg. of the isotopic mass ii. A = Ef 1 a 1 1. F1 is the natural abundance of isotope 1 2. A1 is the mass of isotope 1 iii. 1 = Ef1 iv. Problem 1. 10B with mass of 10.0129 u 2. 11B with mass of 11.0093 u 3. Solution a. 10.81 = f10 (10.0129) + f11(11.0093) b. 1 = f10+f11 c. 10.81 = f (10.0129) + (1-f)(11.0093)...
