## Packing Fraction Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Packing Fraction = Mass Defect/Mass Number
PF = ∆m/A
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Packing Fraction - Packing Fraction is the measure of loss or gain of the total mass in a group of nucleons when they are brought together to form an atomic nucleus.
Mass Defect - (Measured in Kilogram) - Mass Defect is the difference between the actual atomic mass and the predicted mass.
Mass Number - Mass Number is the sum of protons and neutrons in an atom of an element.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Mass Defect: 0.8 Atomic Mass Unit --> 1.32843216014893E-27 Kilogram (Check conversion ​here)
Mass Number: 35 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
PF = ∆m/A --> 1.32843216014893E-27/35
Evaluating ... ...
PF = 3.79552045756837E-29
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
3.79552045756837E-29 --> No Conversion Required
3.79552045756837E-29 3.8E-29 <-- Packing Fraction
