Question: consider a nucleus with a 244 a estimate approximately...

Question details

3. Consider a nucleus with A 3244 (a) Estimate approximately how many nucleons would be at the surface of the nucleus (b) If the binding energy of an interior nucleon due to internucleon attraction is E, and if all nucleons were this tightly bound, the total binding energy would be AE. If we take into account the different binding energy of surface nucleons, roughly what would be the total binding energy? Explain your reasoning. (c) If we treat each nucleon as a classical hard sphere, what is the smallest value of A that would make one nucleon completely surrounded?
