(d) Since A= 239, the electrostatic potential per nucleon is 1.15 GeV/239 = 4.81 MeV/nucleon. (e) The strong force that binds the nucleus is very strong. 8. (a) Since 0U>, the energy represents a tendency for the sphere to blow apart. (b) For 239Pu, Q= 94eand R= 6.64 fm. Including a conversion factor for
