− | The '''Kendrick mass''' is a mass obtained by scaling the [[atomic mass unit]] (u) (or equivalently the dalton (Da)) by the ratio of the mass of the CH<sub>2</sub> group to 14.0000 to simplify the display of peak patterns in hydrocarbon [[mass spectra]]. The scaling factor is 14. | + | The '''Kendrick mass''' is a mass obtained by scaling the [[atomic mass unit]] (u) (or equivalently the dalton (Da)) by the ratio of the mass of the CH<sub>2</sub> group to 14.0000 to simplify the display of peak patterns in hydrocarbon [[mass spectra]].
