Calculate the binding energy per nucleon for the following nuclei:
a: 12C(nuclear mass, 11.996708 amu)
6
-------
b. ^37Cl(nuclear mass, 36.956576)

i'm confused on how to solve and if theres a specific formula for this...

add the masses for six pronons, and six neutrons. Add those masses. Subtract the mass of C12. Convert that to binding energy (E=mc^2) Divide by 12.
