Activity: Nucleons and binding energy

IB Physics: Activity: Nucleons and binding energy

From electrons to the nucleus. Here you will define atomic mass and the unified mass unit and be able to calculate nuclear charge based on the knowledge that a nucleus is made of neutrons and protons. Given that, based on electrostatic forces alone, a nucleus should not exist, you will learn about the nature of the nuclear force and, in turn, define and calculate binding energy in terms of mass defect. Being able to...
