How do you calculate 1 amu in grams using the C-12 atom?

We need to calculate 1 amu in grams using the C-12 atom

An atomic unit of mass is defined as accurately 1/12 the mass of a carbon-12 atom. The carbon-12 atom has six neutrons and six protons in its nucleus. The atomic unit mass is symbolized as amu.

1 amu = Average of the proton rest mass and the neutron rest mass.

1 amu = (Mass of 1 126C atom)/12

1amu = (1.994 x 10-23)/12

1amu = 1.662 x 10-24g 0r 1.662 x 10-27kg.

Answer

1amu = 1.662 x 10-24g 0r 1.662 x 10-27kg.
