Use atomic masses to compute the total binding energy and the binding energy per nucleon for elemental cobalt, which has just one stable isotope, 59 Co.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:56 pm ad1c9bdddf
amu= atomic mass unit
Atomic mass= 58.9332 amu
Mass number= 59
Atomic number=no of protons= 27
No of neutrons= 32 =59-27
No of electrons=no of protons= 27
proton mass = 1.00728 amu ...
