## Related Questions The mass of a nucleus is subtracted from the sum of the masses of its individual components. binding energy expressed in mass units is mass defect .mass defect expressed in energy units is binding energy Binding energy expressed in mass units is mass defect. Mass defect expressed in energy units is binding energy. Mass defect is... the difference between the mass of an isotope and it's mass number. The calculated mass of the nucleus is always greater than the experimentally determined mass.This difference is variously called as mass defect,mass deficit or mass decrement.The reason for mass defect is that,this deficit mass has been transformed into the nuclear binding energy by Einstein equation E=mc2. The mass defect represents the mass converted to binding energy mass defect is the energy that binds the protons and neytrons together in the neycleus. If you add the exact mass of the protons, neutrons, and electrons in an atom you do not get the exact atomic mass of the isotope. The diference is called the mass defect. The difference between the mass of the atomic nucleus and the sum of the masses of the particles within the nucleus is known as the mass defect. A carbon 12 atom has a mass defect of .098931 u. This number, the mass defect, represents the binding energy of the nucleus of the nucleus of the atom, and how energy has to be used to split this nucleus. Mass and volume are not determined by density. Rather density is determined by mass and volume The mass defect law defines the difference between the mass of an atom and the sum of the masses of the protons and neutrons in the nucleus. The difference is expressed in atomic mass units. The unit of mass defect is a.m.u and 1 a.m.u. = 931.5 MeV = 931.5 X 106 eV The binding energy is the mass defect, times the square of the speed of light.The amount stated seems to be an awfully high mass defect, though. The amount of mass missing from a nucleus when compared with the sum of its partsMass defect refers to amount by which the mass of an atomic nucleus is less than the sum of the masses of its constituent particles. It is measured in Atomic Mass Unit (a.m.u) The mass of an atom is determined by the size of the atom, and the bigger the atom, the more mass it has.  Mass is converted to the energy binding a nucleus together Mass is converted to the energy binding a nucleus together They are determined by the surface of which the air mass was formed The relative atomic mass is 83.798. So where did you get that it is not determined. E = MC2; energy is equal to a quantity of matter. When protons (and neutrons) combine in an atomic nucleus, the resultant mass is less than that of the individual particles. This is the mass defect, and the 'missing' mass is a result of the energy binding the particles together. The larger the mass defect for a particular atom (isotope), the larger the amount of nuclear binding energy. The amount of mass used up in holding a nucleus together the mass number is determined on the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of the atom. Mass is an inherent property of matter. Weight is determined by gravity.
