Atomic mass is the weight of the element and atomic number is where it lies on the periodic table and the atomic number also happens to be the proton number.


The atomic mass is given in g/mol.--So that is what it weighs. The atomic number happens to be the number protons in the element. So C (Carbon) happens to have an atomic number of 6 so it has 6 protons and it has an atomic mass of 12.011 meaning that it weighs 12 grams per mole.
