Calculate the mass deficit in this nuclear reaction $12{\rm C}+\frac{12}{6}{\rm C}\rightarrow \frac{24}{12}{\rm Mg}$ Information given: - rest mass of a carbon-12 nucleus: $1.9921157\times 10^{-26}\,{\rm kg}$ - rest mass of a magnesium nucleus: $3.9817469\times 10^{-26}\,{\rm kg}$ - rest mass of a proton: $1.67353\times 10^{-27}\,{\rm kg}$ - rest mass of a neutron: $1.67492\times 10^{-27}\,{\rm kg}$ - speed of light: $3.00\times 10^{8}\,{\rm m}\,{\rm s}^{-1}$ May 13th, 2019, 08:58 PM #4 Senior Member   Joined: Mar 2019 From: TTF area Posts: 168 Thanks: 1 I'm thinking you add two C-12 and take it off mg-24 If so -12.157686-13.817469=1.659783 is this the answer or have I done something wrong? May 15th, 2019, 11:51 AM #5 Senior Member   Joined: Mar 2019 From: TTF area Posts: 168 Thanks: 1 1.9921157×10−2kg+1.9921157×10−26kg−3.98174 69×10−26kg=0.002484x10−26kg Is this correct ? Note in the question above they are both meant to be $12/6C$ Tags calculate, deficit, mass, nuclear, reaction Thread Tools Show Printable Version Email this Page Display Modes Linear Mode Switch to Hybrid Mode Switch to Threaded Mode Similar Threads Thread Thread Starter Forum Replies Last Post helpmeddddd Physics 5 May 13th, 2019 11:47 AM Addez123 Calculus 3 October 31st, 2017 11:03 AM Chikis Algebra 2 January 29th, 2015 04:34 AM girlbadatmath Chemistry 6 December 6th, 2014 08:11 PM JohnSmith222 Physics 6 April 10th, 2008 04:58 PM
