Step 1: Calculate the mass defect (Δm).
• mass 48Ti = 47.9359 amu
atomic # Ti = # of protons = 22
mass # = 48
# of neutrons = 48 - 22
# of neutrons = 26
• mass of proton = 1.007276 amu
• mass neutron = 1.008665 amu
Δm = 0.449462 amu
Step 2: Calculate the mass defect (Δm) in kg.
1 amu = 1.6606x10-27 kg
The nuclear mass of 48Ti is 47.9359 amu. Calculate the binding energy per nucleon for 48Ti.
