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

For atom , The total binding energy =

The binding energy per nucleon=

For atom, The total binding energy =

The binding energy per nucleon=

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step1: Given information.

We have been given that,

,

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

Step2: Calculation for binding energy and binding energy per nucleon for .

Binding energy is given by,

atomic number, mass of proton, number of neutron ,

mass of neutron, mass of atom

Now ,

Binding energy per nucleon=

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

Binding energy is given by ,

For ,

Now,

Binding energy per nucleon =

=

=
