Atomic binding energy – problems and solutions 6

If mass of Be = 9.033 amu, He = 4.002 amu, C = 12.001 amu, n = 1.009 amu. 1 amu ~ 931 MeV, then what is the energy produced.

Solution :

Mass of reactans and products :

Mass of reactans (mreactans) = 9.033 amu + 4.002 amu = 13.035 amu

Mass of products (mproduct) = 12.001 amu + 1.009 amu = 13.01 amu

Mass lost during reaction:

Δm = mreactan– mproducts

Δm = 13.035 amu – 13.01 amu

Δm = 0.025 amu

The mass lost in the fusion reaction is 0.025 amu.

1 amu is equivalent to 931 MeV of energy. 0.025 amu equivalent to the energy of 0.025 x 931 MeV = 23.275 MeV.
