Notes Mass Parabola In nuclear physics, a "mass parabola" refers to a graph of the binding energy per nucleon as a function of the atomic mass number.The binding energy is the energy ...

Notes Reciprocity Theory It is the relationship between total cross section σ (x-> y) of the entrance channel x and total cross section σ (y->x) of reaction channel y.Reciprocity theory is based ...

Notes Deuteron problem The deuteron is also important for understanding the behaviour of nuclear forces, which are responsible for holding atomic nuclei together.The solution of the deuteron problem paved the way for ...

Notes Relation between Nuclear potential and Range of nuclear force The nuclear potential is the potential energy associated with the nuclear force, which is the strong force that binds protons and neutrons together in the nucleus of an atom. The ...

Notes Briet Wigner Resonance formula The Breit-Wigner formula, also known as the Breit-Wigner resonance formula, is a mathematical expression used to describe the probability of a resonance occurring in a particle physics experiment. It …

Notes Nuclear Cross section When projectile particles bombard with the target nucleus, these are different possible ways of removing of particles from incident beam. The particles ray be scattered or may be absorbed by ...

Notes Q value of a Nuclear reaction The Q value of a Nuclear reaction is the energy either absorbed or released during a nuclear reaction. Let us consider a nuclear reaction,a + X -> Y + ...

Notes Shell model In nuclear physics, the shell model is a theoretical model used to explain the properties of atomic nuclei. The model is based on the idea that nucleons (protons and neutrons) ...
