# OEGetAverageWeight¶

double OEGetAverageWeight(unsigned int elemno)


Returns the average atomic weight of an element, based upon the naturally occurring abundances of its isotopes. To return the ‘monoisotopic’ weight for a particular element use the OEGetIsotopicWeight function like the following.

   const auto elemno = OEElemNo::O;
const auto weight = OEGetIsotopicWeight(elemno, OEGetDefaultMass(elemno));
cout << OEGetAtomicSymbol(elemno) << ' ' << weight << endl;
