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

**Nuclear Binding Energy**

Is the nucleon bounded equally to every other nucleon? C ≡ this presumed binding energy. Btot = C(A-1) A ½ Bave = ½ C(A-1) Linear ??!!! Directly proportional ??!!! Clearly wrong … ! wrong assumption finite range of strong force, and force saturation. Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, (Saed Dababneh).

**Nuclear Binding Energy**

Lead isotopes Z = 82 For constant Z Sn (even N) > Sn (odd N) For constant N Sp (even Z) > Sp (odd Z) Remember HW 14 (Krane 3.14). 208Pb (doubly magic) can then easily remove the “extra” neutron in 209Pb. 208Pb Neutron Separation Energy Sn (MeV) Neutron Number N Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, (Saed Dababneh).

**Nuclear Binding Energy**

Extra Binding between pairs of “identical” nucleons in the same state (Pauli … !) Stability (e.g. -particle, N=2, Z=2). Sn (A, Z, even N) – Sn (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.

**The Semi-empirical Mass Formula**

von Weizsäcker in 1935. Liquid drop. Shell structure. Main assumptions: Incompressible matter of the nucleus R A⅓. Nuclear force saturates. Binding energy is the sum of terms: Volume term. 4. Asymmetry term. Surface term. 5. Pairing term. Coulomb term. 6. Closed shell term. ….. Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, (Saed Dababneh).

16
**The Semi-empirical Mass Formula**

Volume Term Bv = + av A Bv volume R3 A Bv / A is a constant i.e. number of neighbors of each nucleon is independent of the overall size of the nucleus. constant The other terms are “corrections” to this term. Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, (Saed Dababneh).

17
**The Semi-empirical Mass Formula**

Surface Term Bs = - as A⅔ Binding energy of inner nucleons is higher than that at the surface. Light nuclei contain larger number (per total) at the surface. At the surface there are: Nucleons. Remember t/R A-1/3 Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, (Saed Dababneh).

**The Semi-empirical Mass Formula**

Coulomb Term BC = - aC Z(Z-1) / A⅓ Charge density Z / R3. W 2 R5. Why ??? W Z2 / R. Actually: W Z(Z-1) / R. BC / A = - aC Z(Z-1) / A4/3 Remember HW 8 … ?! Nuclear and Radiation Physics, BAU, First Semester, (Saed Dababneh).
