6. We consider the process 98 Mo 49 Sc + 49 Sc. The disintegration energy is Q =( m Mo 2 m Sc ) c 2 = [97 . 90541 u 2(48 . 95002 u)](931 . 5MeV / u) = +5 . 00 MeV . The fact that it is positive does not necessarily mean we should expect to Fnd a great deal of Molybdenum nuclei spontaneously Fssioning; the energy
