Problem: The nuclear mass of 141 Ba is 140.883 amu. Calculate the Binding energy per nucleon for 141 Ba.In J/Nucleon

FREE Expert Solution

The number of mass = 141 and the atomic number, Z = 56.

The number of neutrons, N = 141 - 56 = 85.

Mass of proton = 1.00727647 amu

Mass of neutron = 1.0086654 amu

The total mass of the isotope:

mtotal = (56)(1.00727647) + (85)(1.0086654) = 142.144 amu
