The Gram Atomic Mass of a substance is equal to the atomic mass of a substance taken in grams.

In other words, it is the mass of 1 mole of an element based on its atomic mass expressed in grams.

 

Example: Sodium (Na) has atomic weight 23u

It gram atomic mass is thus 23g

 

So 1 mole of Na atoms has a mass of 23 grams.
