# Obtain the bindin

The number of neutron and Proton both in a 56Fe26 atom is respectively 30 and 26.

The mass defect Δm = mp + mn-mFe

And Binding energy is given by EB = Δmc2

Mass of a proton = 1.007825 u

Mass of a neutron = 1.008665 u

In this case mass defect = Δm = (26 × 1.007825 + 30 × 1.008665-55.934939)u = 0.528461u

We know, 1 u = 931.5 MeV/c2

So, E = Δmc2 = 0.528461 × 931.5(MeV/c2) × c2 = 492.26MeV

So, Binding Energy per Nucleon = = = 8.79MeV

The number of neutron and Proton both in a 209Bi83 atom is respectively 126 and 83.

The mass defect Δm = mp + mn-mBi

And Binding energy is given by EB = Δmc2

Mass of a proton = 1.007825 u

Mass of a neutron = 1.008665 u

Mass Defect = Δm = 83 × 1.007825 + 126 × 1.008665-208.980388 = 1.760877 u

We know, 1 u = 931.5 MeV/c2

So, E = Δmc2 = 1.760877 × 931.5 (Mev/c2) × c2 = 1640.26 MeV

Average binding energy per nucleon = 1640.26/209 = 7.848 MeV
