Determine the amount of energy required (in MeV) to dissociate the following
elements into component parts (protons, neutrons and electrons)
• Hydrogen
• Deuterium
• Tritium

  • nuclear engineering -

    Look up the masses m of the three atomic isotopes and compute m c^2 for each.

    Compare them to the sum of the m^c^2 values of the p's, n's and e's.

    All three have only one electron.

    The difference will be the binding energy.
