A particle physicist discovers a neutral particle with a mass of 2.02733 u that he assumes is two neutrons bound together. (a) Find the binding energy. (b) What is unreasonable about this result? (c) What assumptions are unreasonable or inconsistent?

a) $|-9.315 \mathrm{MeV}|$b) If the binding energy is negative, then the nucleus will not form. This is why this result is found tobe unreasonable.c) Now, here it is assumed that two neutrons combined and convert in particle. Now, two neutronsdo not have any interactive force that can bind them with each other. Or, rather, two neutronscould not bind each other to form a nucleus. So, this is where the result got inconsistent.

But, hey, the binding energy can build Today's for the given particle Will be, um, two dimes. Often you've drawn Marcel Finn. You've grown. So it's made up of two neutrons minus moss off the particle. Um, so whole month supply would see square, then two times, often in corn, which we have here, masses. 1.0 Uh, a double six. Wife irritable. 65 um, minus the moss off particles. Even we have is 2.2733 33 times their energy per atomic mass unit we have is a tree. 931 A mega electron, Walt, our speed off light square. So Speer flied square times the speed off lights were from the formula. So this is Father Atomic Mass Unit. And this gives us the binding energy off a minus 9.315 mega electron world. Maybe another drone, Walt. So, uh, in about me, the binding energy cannot be negative. S o. The new case wouldn't stay together, So got to be digging too. I won't be a negative, so the nucleus wouldn't stay together. Yes. Um, in part c, the particle cannot be met. Up off tuning drawn swords cannot cannot remain opposed to new drones. Two neutrons end off the problem. Thank you for
