The Nucleus

calculation of nuclear radii & ratios




radii of nucleus

Example #1

What is the diameter of an oxygen nucleus(nucleon number 16)? (Answer to 2 d.p. )

nuclear radius problem #01

Example #2

If the number of nucleons in a copper nucleus is 64 and the number of nucleons in an oxygen nucleus is 16, how much larger is a copper nucleus than an oxygen nucleus(2 d.p.)?

nuclear radii prob#02

A copper nucleus is 1.59 times larger than an oxygen nucleus
