# Calculate (in ) the total binding energy and the binding energy per nucleon for and for .

For atom, Binding energy =

Binding energy per nucleon =

For atom, Binding energy =

Binding energy per nucleon =

See the step by step solution

## Step1: Given information.

We have been given that,

,

We need to find the binding energy and binding energy per nucleon for both atoms.

## Step2: Calculation for binding energy and binding energy per nucleon of

Binding energy is given by,

Where,

= atomic number ,= number of neutrons ,mass of atom,

=mass of neutron , =mass of element.

For atom,

Binding energy per nucleon =

Therefore,

For ,

Binding energy per nucleon =

=

## Step3: Calculation for binding energy and binding energy per nucleon of .

Binding energy is given by,

For ,

Now,

Binding energy per nucleon is =

=

=
