    Thanks! That does help. Do you know how to get that though? I know the mass of a proton is 1.67262*10^-27 and the mass of an electron is 0.00091*10^-27, but I have no idea what to do with those numbers. :)

    The masses are an approximates i believe. Simply divide the numbers. (1.67262*10^-27)/(.00091*10^-27)
