The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the energy which comes out with fission of the nucleus of deuterium and tritium, so we receive like product the nucleus of helium. mass of tritiumm(\stackrel{3}{1}H)=3,016049u mass of the nucleus of deuterium m(\stackrel{2}{1}H)=2,013553u mass of the nucleus of helium m(\stackrel{4}{2}He)=4,002603u 2. Relevant equations \Delta E=\Delta m c^2 3. The attempt at a solution The nuclear reaction \stackrel{2}{1}H + \stackrel{3}{1}H \rightarrow \stackrel{4}{2}He + \stackrel{1}{0}n + energy How will I find the mass of triton( the nucleus of tritium) ? mathman04-13-08, 06:52 PMhttp://atom.kaeri.re.kr/ton/ Above link will give you information about all nuclides. StMartin04-14-08, 01:42 AMOk, thanks I lot. As result I get: (3,016049u+2,013553u)-(4,002603u+1,008665u)=0,018334 0,018334*931,494 MeV=17,078011 MeV And in my text book results it is 17,8 MeV. Is their fault? mathman04-14-08, 07:31 PMI don't know the correct value. If you did the calculation correctly, the text book looks like a typo - presumably they intended 17.08 MeV.
