Total combined mass is 15.994 915 amu Total separated mass is 16.131 925 amu Mass difference: 0.137 010 Binding energy per nucleon energy equivalent of the mass difference E B 0.137010 amu 931.4 MeV / atom amu E B 127.6 MeV / atom E B A 127.6 MeV / atom 16 nucleons / atom 7.98 MeV / nucleon Compare binding energy to bond energy 2 O O 2 ~ 5 eV HUGE Difference of 6 orders-of-magnitude. Curve of binding energy In this region E B scales with A Fusion is Energy-releasing Fission is Energy-releasing Curve of binding energy E B /A begins with a low value for deuterium and then increases rapidly through He, C, and O which are exceptionally stable....
