The binding energy per nucleon for the parent nucleus is

Question:

The binding energy per nucleon for the parent nucleus is $\mathrm{E}_{1}$ an that for the daughter nuclei is $\mathrm{E}_{2}$. Then:-

 

  1. $\mathrm{E}_{1}=2 \mathrm{E}_{2}$

  2. $\mathrm{E}_{2}=2 \mathrm{E}_{1}$

  3. $\mathrm{E}_{1}>\mathrm{E}_{2}$

  4. $\mathrm{E}_{2}>\mathrm{E}_{1}$


Correct Option: , 4

Solution:

Because energy is releasing $\Rightarrow$ Binding energy per nucleon of product $>$ that of parent $\Rightarrow \mathrm{E}_{2}>\mathrm{E}_{1}$.
