1 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 1 Nuclear Size Alpha particle (+2e) Gold nucleus (+79e) d Quite old!!! Not exactly for Au!!!

2 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 2 Nuclear Size Closest approach d. E = E Coulomb d = 2kZe 2 /E What about the recoil nucleus? HW 7 HW 7 Show that where m N : mass of the nucleus m : mass of alpha What are the values of d for 10, 20, 30 and 40 MeV on Au? How does this explain … ?

3 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 3 Nuclear Shape Crude Nucleons in the nucleus are confined to an approximately spherically symmetric structure Nuclear radius. Deformations…! Consequences….!! Is there a sharp spherical wall…???!!! HW 8 if it is assumed that the charge is uniformly spherically distributed in a nucleus, show that the electric potential energy of a proton is given by:

4 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 4 Nuclear Binding Energy B tot (A,Z) = [ Zm H + Nm n - m(A,Z) ] c 2 B m HW 9 B ave (A,Z) = B tot (A,Z) / A HW 9 Krane 3.9 HW 10 Atomic masses from: HW 10 Krane 3.12 http://physics.nist.gov/cgi-bin/Compositions/stand_alone.pl?ele=&all=all&ascii=ascii&isotype=all Separation Energy Neutron separation energy: (BE of last neutron) S n = [ m(A-1,Z) + m n – m(A,Z) ] c 2 HW 11 = B tot (A,Z) - B tot (A-1,Z) HW 11 Prove that HW 12 HW 12 Similarly, find S p and S. HW 13HW 14 HW 13 Krane 3.13HW 14 Krane 3.14 Magic numbers

5 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 5 Nuclear Binding Energy Magic numbers

6 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 6 Nuclear Binding Energy In general X Y + a S a (X) = (m a + m Y –m X ) c 2 = B X –B Y –B a The energy needed to remove a nucleon from a nucleus ~ 8 MeV average binding energy per nucleon (Exceptions???). Mass spectroscopy B. Nuclear reactions S. Nuclear reactions Q-value

7 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 7 Nuclear Binding Energy ~200 MeV Fission Fusion Coulomb effectSurface effect HWc 4 Think of a computer program to reproduce this graph.

8 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 8 Nuclear Binding Energy HW 15 A typical research reactor has power on the order of 10 MW. a) Estimate the number of 235 U fission events that occur in the reactor per second. b) Estimate the fuel-burning rate in g/s.

9 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 9 Nuclear Binding Energy Is the nucleon bounded equally to every other nucleon? C this presumed binding energy. B tot = C(A-1) A ½ B ave = ½ C(A-1) Linear ??!!! Directly proportional ??!!! Clearly wrong … ! wrong assumption finite range of strong force, and force saturation.

10 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 10 Nuclear Binding Energy Lead isotopes Z = 82 For constant Z S n (even N) > S n (odd N) For constant N S p (even Z) > S p (odd Z) Remember HW 14 (Krane 3.14). 208 Pb (doubly magic) can then easily remove the extra neutron in 209 Pb. Neutron Number N Neutron Separation Energy S n (MeV) 208 Pb

11 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 11 Nuclear Binding Energy Extra Binding between pairs of identical nucleons in the same state (Pauli … !) Stability (e.g. -particle, N=2, Z=2). S n (A, Z, even N) – S n (A-1, Z, N-1) This is the neutron pairing energy. even-even more stable than even-odd or odd-even and these are more tightly bound than odd-odd nuclei. Symmetry?

12 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 12 Abundance Systematics Odd NEven NTotal Odd Z Even Z Total Compare: even Z to odd Z. even N to odd N. even A to odd A. even-even to even-odd to odd-even to odd-odd. HWc 1 \

13 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 13 Neutron Excess Odd A Even A Z = N Asymmetry Remember HWc 1.

14 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, Second Semester, 2009-2010 (Saed Dababneh). 14 Neutron Excess Remember HWc 1. Asymmetry
