Define mass spectrum.

Mass Spectrum:

“Mass spectrum is a plot of data in such a way that m/e is plotted as abscissa (x-axis) and the relative number of ions as ordinate (y-axis).”

The number of peaks represents the number of isotopes while the heights of peaks reflect the percentage abundance of isotopes. Mass spectrum of Neon is shown in the figure.
