```							Let’s take oxygen, O2, for an example. Examples shall make it easier to understand.We will use u, kg and g as the units of mass. The full form of u is Unified atomic mass unit. Commonly people use amu (atomic mass unit) or Da (dalton) as well.kg is kilogram and g is gram.1 u = mass of one nucleon (proton/neutron; the constituents of the atomic nucleus).1 u = 1.66 ×10^−27 kg.Atomic Mass: An oxygen molecule is constituted of two oxygen atoms. O2 is basically ::O=O::Atomic mass is the mass of one atom. The mass of one oxygen atom is (15.9994 ± 0.0004) u or roughly 16 u.———————————Molecular Mass: Mass of one molecule of oxygen i.e. of one ‘O2′ molecule (the whole ::O=O:: entity).So the mass of one molecule of oxygen will be 2 x 16 u = 32 u.——————————Molar mass: The mass of one mole of oxygen.1 mole of oxygen = 6.022 × 10^23 number of oxygen molecules.Let us try to calculate and see how it goes.1 molecule of O2 weighs 32 u = 32 x 1.66 ×10^−27 kg1 mole of oxygen = 6.022 × 10^23 number of oxygen moleculesSo 1 mole of oxygen weighs 32 x 1.66 ×10^−27 x 6.022 × 10^23 kg = 0.031988864 kg = 31.988 g = approximately 32 g.
