We are asked to calculate the nuclear binding energy for 4He.
To calculate for the nuclear binding energy:
Step 1: Determine the number of protons and neutrons
Step 2: Determine the total mass of protons and neutrons
Step 3: Calculate the mass defect (∆m)
Step 4: Determine nuclear binding energy per nucleon
The atomic masses of hydrogen-2 (deuterium), helium-4, and lithium-6 are 2.014102 amu, 4.002602 amu, and 6.0151228 amu, respectively.
For 4He, calculate the nuclear binding energy.
