He_{2}^{3} and He_{1}^{3} nuclei have the same mass number. Do they have the same binding energy?

Answers (1)

Both in He_{2}^{3} and He_{1}^{3}, there are the same mass numbers. However, the difference between these two nuclei is binding energy. In the case of He_{1}^{3}, the binding energy is more than that of He_{2}^{3}. This is because the number of protons and neutrons present in both of the nuclei are different. The He_{1}^{3} nuclei contain only one proton with two neutrons. However, the He_{2}^{3} nuclei have two protons and only one neutron in it.
