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...

please help thank you

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.
