Energy Changes in Nuclear Reactions (Section)

The isotope 62 28Ni has the largest binding energy per nucleon of any isotope. Calculate this value from the atomic mass of nickel-62 (61.928345 amu) and compare it with the value given for iron-56 in Table.

General Chemistry: Chapter 1 Reading Notes By Madelyne Crawford, August 25 The following notes were acquired from Chemistry: A Molecular Approach Textbook by Nivaldo J Tro. The reading was to be completed by Monday, August 29. Overview/Review of Chapter 1  The main goal of chemistry is to analyze and study the behavior of matter by understanding the behavior of atoms and molecules  The scientific approach to knowledge is based on observation and experiments  Qualitative vs. quantitative: o Qualitative describes how a process happens o Quantitative measures something about the process  A hypothesis is an interpretation of observations that explains scientific findings
