Another instance where the current definition of Bnominal mass^ adds to the confusion is XeCl (Figure 1). Granted that rom the BComment on: Nominal Mass?^ made by Kermit by the current definition the nominal mass of Xe is 132, and that FK. Murray [1], it is evident that the definition we proposed of Cl 35, the nominal mass of XeCl is 132 +(2 ×35) =202 [2] for the term Bnominal mass^ needs further clarification. Our attempt was to formulate a universal definition applicable to because according to row 2 of Murray’sTable 1, it should be the any isotope or isotopologue, irrespective of stability, natural Bsum of the nominal masses of the most abundant stable abundance, or origin (natural or man-made).
