How does the binding energy per nucleon vary with the increase in the number of nucleons?
 1 decrease continuously with mass number. 2 first decreases and then increases with an increase in mass number. 3 first increases and then decreases with an increase in mass number. 4 increases continuously with mass number.

The binding energy of deuteron is $$2.2~\text{MeV}$$ and that of $$_2\mathrm{He}^{4}$$ is $$28~\text{MeV}$$. If two deuterons are fused to form one $$_{2}\mathrm{He}^{4}$$${}^{}$then the energy released is:
1. $$25.8~\text{MeV}$$
2. $$23.6~\text{MeV}$$
3. $$19.2~\text{MeV}$$

A nucleus ${}_{Z}{X}^{A}$ has a mass represented by $$M(A, Z).$$ If $$M_P$$ and $$M_n$$ denote the mass of proton and neutron respectively and BE the binding energy, then:

1. $BE=\left[M\left(A,Z\right)-Z{M}_{p}-\left(A-Z\right){M}_{n}\right]{c}^{2}$

2. $BE=\left[Z{M}_{p}+\left(A-Z\right){M}_{n}-M\left(A,$ $Z\right)\right]{c}^{2}$

3. $BE=\left[Z{M}_{p}+A{M}_{n}-M-\left(A,$ $Z\right)\right]{c}^{2}$

4. $BE=M\left(A,$ $Z\right)-Z{M}_{p}-\left(A-Z\right){M}_{n}$

If $$M(A,~Z)$$$$M_p$$${}_{}$, and $$M_n$$ denote the masses of the nucleus $$^{A}_{Z}X,$$ proton, and neutron respectively in units of $$u$$ ($$1~u=931.5~\text{MeV/c}^2$$) and represent its binding energy $$(BE)$$ in $$\text{MeV}$$. Then:

 1 $$M(A, Z) = ZM_p + (A-Z)M_n- \frac{BE}{c^2}$$ 2 $$M(A, Z) = ZM_p + (A-Z)M_n+ BE$$ 3 $$M(A, Z) = ZM_p + (A-Z)M_n- BE$$ 4 $$M(A, Z) = ZM_p + (A-Z)M_n+ \frac{BE}{c^2}$$
