Naturally occurring iodine has an atomic mass of 126.9045. A 12.3849 -g sample of iodine is accidentally contaminated with 1.00070 g of ^129 I, a synthetic radioisotope of iodine used in the treatment of certain diseases of the thyroid gland. The mass of ^129 I is 128.9050amu.

Find the apparent "atomic mass" of the contaminated iodine.

    avg atomic mass=
    1.00070*128.9050 +(12.3849-1.00070)126.9045

    oops, all that has to be divided by the total mass, 12.3849 g

  • chemistry -

    567.0

  • chemistry -

    127.055 amu

  • chemistry -

    127.055 amu
