If Mo is the mass of an oxygen isotope 8 O 17 m p and m n are the masses of proton and neutron, the binding energy is....... some of the websites have given the answer (Mo-8m p -9m n )*c^2 but Mo should include the mass of the electrons also . The mass of neutron is nearly equal to the sum of masses of proton and electron so the answer should be (Mo - 17 m n )*c 2 What do you think?
