Unformatted text preview: How unstable nuclides undergo either fission or fusion to increase their binding energy per nucleon. The current application of fission and potential application of fusion to produce energy. Master These Skills Express the mass and charge of a particle with A Z X notation. Use charges in the values of A and Z to write and balance nuclear equations. Calculate specific activity, decay constant, halflife, and number of nuclei. Estimate the age of an object from the specific activity and halflife of carbon14. Calculate the mass defect and its energy equivalent in J and eV. Calculate the binding energy per nucleon and using it to compare stabilities of nuclides. Calculate the energy released in a fusion or fission reaction. Additional Learning Objectives Describe the similarities and differences between a nuclear power plant and a nuclear bomb. Be familiar with medical applications of nuclear chemistry....
