Z = 92
A = 235
Number of Neutrons = 143
Mass of neutron = 1.0083 u
Mass of proton = 1.00783 u
Atomic mass = 235 u
When a nucleus of 235U undergoes fission, it breaks into two smaller, more tightly bound fragments.
1) Calculate the binding energy per nucleon for 235U?
2) Calculate the binding energy per nucleon for the fission product 137Cs?
