the radius of a nucleus of mass no. 16 is 3 Fermi.Find the radius of the nucleus of mass no. 128?


7 years ago


Answers : (2)


Average radius if nucleus is given by:

R = R0A1/3       A:mass number    R0 = 1.1x10-15m =1.1 fermi

so, R1/R2 = (A1/A2)1/3

given R1 = unknown ,    R2 = 3 fm  , A1 = 128  ,      A2 = 16

So, R1 = 2*(128/16)1/3

R1 = 6 fermi


Please feel free to post as many doubts on our disucssion forum as you can. If you find any question difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly. We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE preparation. All the best.

A small mistake from above solution


So, R1 = 3*(128/16)1/3

R1 = 6 fermi
