The abbreviation $$\frac{m}{z}$$ is used to denote the dimensionless quantity formed by dividing the @M03726@ of an ion by its @C00993@. It has long been called the mass-to-charge ratio although $$m$$ is not the ionic mass nor is $$z$$ a multiple or the elementary (electronic) charge, $$e$$. The abbreviation $$\frac{m}{e}$$ is, therefore, not recommended. Thus, for example, for the ion (C7H72+) , $$\frac{m}{z}$$ equals 45.5.
