Coulomb energy kâruž-e Coulomb Fr.: énergie coulombienne The → binding energy per particle (~ 8 Mev). However
the Coulomb repulsion becomes important for heavy nuclei. The total Coulomb energy
of a nucleus is given by: (3/5) Z(Z - 1)e, where ^{2}/RZ
is the → atomic number, e the charge, and R
the nuclear radius. Since R ∝ A and ^{1/3}Z is roughly
proportional to A, the Coulomb energy is roughly proportional to
A. On the other hand,
the total binding energy is proportional to ^{5/3}A, which means that the relative
importance of the repulsive electrostatic energy increases with increasing mass
number as A.^{2/3} |
