<br>Additional information used.

<br>

<br>Mass of proton : 1,6726 x 10^(-27) kg

<br>Mass of neutron: 1,6749 x 10^(-27) kg

<br>Mass of electron: 0,00091x10^(-27) kg

<br>

<br>

<br>Total number of protons in the 235U92 is -> 92

<br>

<br>So, that makes the number of neutrons = 143

<br>

<br>So, the total mass of nucleus is,

<br>

<br>[92 x 1,6726 x 10^(-27) kg] ...
