Re: excess mass

on this scale C-12 has an excess mass of 0.0000 MeV

For any other nuclide multiply the number of nucleons N x 9.320x10^2
and add the excess mass, and you have the mass of that nuclide in
Mev... well not really the mass, but the energy equivalent of the mass.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Mark. This seems to agree to 4-5 figures with the numbers
obtained from the web chart.

Thanks to all who responded. I don't think that we need any more
