How heavy is water molecule?

Just a simple calculation, I did, says; the heaviest meson we know, is 35% lighter, than the water molecule, and about 22000 times heavier than electron. I am thinking along side the PDG list of particles; all atoms and molecules can have their properties mentioned …

A quick division by 0.35 gives that water molecule is therefore, 62.86 K heavier than one electron. Thus the water molecule nucleus is 6.29 K times heavier than the total electrons it has revolving around its nucleus. (There are 2 H and 1 O = 10 electrons right? Or is it 18?)

Hypothesis non fingo, eppur si muove, dubito cogito ergo sum are things that turn me on ! Researcher in experimental high energy physics (aka elementary particle physics; like “quarks, leptons & mesons and baryons”) … Teacher of Physics (and occasionally chemistry and maths) Blogger (check my website; ! Love to read read and read but only stuff that interest me. Love to puff away my time in frivolities, just dreaming and may be thinking. Right now desperately trying to streamline myself.
