1. Thus, the correct molecular weight of horse myoglobin is 16,951.49 and that of the sperm whale protein is 17,199.91 atomic mass units. So in grams, one multiplies that by the mass of 1/12 of a Carbon 12 atom, so the

horse myoglobin=1.66053892E−27 *16,900= 455087.807=2.8E02 Kg

you can do the whale myoglobin.

Human myoglobin is about 2.7731e-20 grams

If you research this, you will find the unit daltons. Convert that to grams.
