Calculate the mass defect and the binding energy/nucleon of the nuclide 9/4 Be which has a mass of 9.012 182 24 amu. The mass of a proton is 1.007 276 47 amu and the mass of a neutron is 1.008 664 90. one amu= 1.6605*10^-27 and the speed of light is 3.00*10^8 m/s
My goodness, Michael, Kelly, Christina -- or whatever you name is -- you just posted 8 chemistry questions. Do you know how to start any of them?
Hi sorry - We have been working together trying to figure them out. and no we don't know
Add mass electrons, mass neutrons, mass protons to find sum, subtract from the mass of the atom to find the mass defect. Delta E = delta m*c2
Delta E/number of nucleons = energy/nucleon.
