Estimate the total binding energy for copper.
550 MeV

Estimate the energy, in joules, needed to break a 3.0g copper penny into its constituent nucleons.
E= in Joules

Please help me out I got 1st part I need the Energy in joules am confused please help me out...thanks

  1. Number of atoms is
    N= N(A)•m/μ =
    =6.022•10²³•0.003/63.5•10⁻³=2.85•10²².
    Number of nucleons (protons+neutrons) =
    =2.85•10²²•63=1.8•10²⁴.
    Energy = 1.8•10²⁴•550•10⁶•1.6•10⁻¹⁹ =1.58•10⁸ J

    How do I find the binding energy for the nuclei of Lithium 6. The equation I'm using is : B(N,Z)=Z*m(0,1)*c^2+N*(mass of n)*c^2-m(N,Z)*c^2. B(N,Z)=3*(1.00783u*1.66E-27kg)*(3E8 m/s)^2+3*(1.008664u*1.66E-27kg)*(3E8
