Nuclear Physics A Level Physics Revision including Binding Energy, Mass Defect and Binding Energy per Nucleon.
This is part 2 of a series. The first part on the nuclear atom is here:

00:00 E=mc^2
00:27 E=mc^2 in nuclear reactions
03:26 electron positron annihilation
05:52 Binding Energy and Mass Defect
08:12 Nuclear Fission and Fusion
09:00 Binding Energy per Nucleon VS Nucleon Number Graph (IMPORTANT!)
11:41 Binding Energy per Nucleon Calculation
15:55 Induced Nuclear Fission and Chain Reactions
16:35 Components of a Nuclear Reactor
18:14 Nuclear Fusion and Temperature

Thanks for watching! Part 1 on the Nuclear Atom is here: https://youtu.be/8dfBUxRzWxU and a playlist of all of my revision videos is here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSygKZqfTjPC3hJ7nRSnnXTw3tI_o67dR Good luck in revision! : )

KO says:

Would i subtract the mass after fusion/fission away from the mass before? or vise versa?

x_Nova_x says:

at 11:39 is the binding energy equal to the change in energy?

Fred says:

Errr. What 20:11 , you haven’t actually answered the question. It states ‘suggest why…. for deuterium and helium’. You have compared the both. The question on asks for why the probability is less for both. Not to suggest why it is less for the other.

ッ- says:

can you make video on Advanced Informatino for 2022 OCR A exams like predicted questinos

Kimchim Gangee says:

can you do practice questions for this topic?

Zaheer Mughal says:

i watched this video IN VR

Kimchim Gangee says:

My textbook says the formula for gravitational field strength is = Gm/r2
in ur rev video u mentioned it was minus Gm/r2
can u explain the minuses

方tianshu says:

Thank you for your amazing video! I got a small question would like to ask, why the greater electrostatic repulsive force means higher reaction probability? Thank you !

edforever says:

great video, for binding energy calculations in aqa they give u masses in terms of u and then u can just multiply by 931.5 to get the mass defect straight into energy in MeV which i find is much quicker for any aqa people out there! (all on data sheet)


Can the fast moving neutrons be used in nuclear fission . If not then why ?

Good times says:

This is a great video

Fatymah Batool says:

Thanks, Can you do one for thermal physics please?

Tushar says:

Atomic physics please

Frisk R says:

Thank you for this, is there a possibility you can do magnetic fields?

julhudda says:

excited to use these videos at A-level 🙂

Expiracy says:

top notch stuff

camdenmusique says:

Wow exactly what I needed after finishing nuclear physics in lesson thank you for your helpful lessons!
