# ${{\boldsymbol \mu}}$ MASS (atomic mass units u) INSPIRE search

The muon's mass is obtained from the muon-electron mass ratio as determined from the measurement of Zeeman transition frequencies in muonium ( ${{\mathit \mu}^{+}}{{\mathit e}^{-}}$ atom). Since the electron's mass is most accurately known in u, the muon's mass is also most accurately known in u. The conversion factor to MeV has approximately the same relative uncertainty as the mass of the muon in u. In this datablock we give the result in u, and in the following datablock in MeV.
