Binding Energy Formula

Sep 05, 2022, 16:45 IST

Energy equivalent to mass defect is called a binding force. The nucleus resembles a fixed circular ball formed by combining a large number of small circular balls in the nucleon's form. Something is needed to bound the collected nucleons. That’s what helps as glue. Every nucleon must give its quantity to deliver the energy resulting in a mass defect.

Binding Energy is also known as the energy required to break down a nucleus into its component nucleons.
