The binding energy per nucleon of O16 is 7.97 MeV and that of O17 is 7.75 MeV. The energy (in MeV) required to remove a neutron from O17 is 
(a) 3.52                 (b) 3.64
(c) 4.23                 (d) 7.86

(c) The equation is O17n01+O16
 Energy required = B.E. of  O17– B.E. of O16
= 17 × 7.75 – 16 × 7.97 = 4.23 MeV
