(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 0 U > , the energy represents a tendency for the sphere to blow apart. (b) For 239 Pu, Q = 94 e and R = 6.64 fm. Including a conversion factor for
