STANDARD ATOMIC WEIGHTS (2005) This table of atomic weights includes the changes made in 2005 by the IUPAC Commission on Isotopic Abundances and Atomic Weights . Those changes affected the following elements: Al, Au, Bi, Co, Cs, La, Mn, Na, Nd, P, Pt, Sm, Sc, Ta, Tb, and Th . The Standard Atomic Weights apply to the elements as they ex- ist naturally on Earth, and the uncertainties take into account the isotopic variation found in most laboratory samples . Further com- ments on the variability are given in the footnotes . The number in parentheses following the atomic weight value gives the uncertainty in the last digit . An atomic weight entry in brackets indicates that the element that has no stable isotopes; the value given is the atomic mass in u (or the mass number, if the mass is not accurately known) for the isotope of longest half-life . Thorium, protactinium, and uranium have no stable isotopes, but the terrestrial isotopic composition is sufficiently uniform to per- mit a standard atomic weight to be specified . References 1 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
