# 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.

        int elemno = OEElemNo.O;
double weight = oechem.OEGetIsotopicWeight(elemno, oechem.OEGetDefaultMass(elemno));
