Homework Help: College Chemistry (Hard)

Posted by Jim on Monday, April 5, 2010 at 10:22pm.

The easiest fusion reaction to initiate is
1-1H + 1-1H------> 4-2He + 1-0 n

The 1-1 indicates a small one above the other on the left side of the symbol of the element.So for 1-0n is a one above a zero on the left side of
n (neutron). The number on the top is the atomic mass and the one on the bottom is the atomic number.

Calculate the energy released per 4-2He nucleus produced and per mole of
4-2He produced. The atomic masses are:
2-1H 2.01410amu
3-1H 3.01605amu
4-2He 4.00260amu
The masses of the electron and neutron are 5.4858x10^-4 and 1.00866 amu.

Maybe this might help
proton amu is 1.00782
