Ensign, stoichiometry and calculations Naturally occurring bromine is composed of two isotopes which have atomic masses of 78.918336 and 80.916289 amu Isotope 1 is present at an abundance of 50 69% amu. 50.69% while isotope 2 is present at an abundance of 49.31% . Use this information to determine the average atomic f t ll i b i mass of naturally occurring bromine 26 S. Ensign, stoichiometry and calculations The atomic weights provided in a Periodic Table are the average atomic weights of the naturally occurring elements 27 S.
