Using linear least squares method and by data of atomic mass, the present study calculates the coefficients of volume, surface, Coulomb, and asymmetry terms in semi-empirical formula. Our findings show that the mass of neutron and hydrogen can be estimated via developing this example. The results of the present calculations are also compared with those of similar previous studies.
