Problem: Calculate the binding energy per nucleon for  238U___________MeV/nucleon

FREE Expert Solution

Binding energy:

BE=m·c2

c is the speed of light.

m=Z·mp+N·mn-matom

Δm is the mass defect.

Mass of proton, mp = 1.007825 amu

Mass of neutron, mn = 1.008665 amu

Z = 92

N = (238 - 92) = 146
