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 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 $12/6C$
