Nuclear Fission Mass Defect
« on: March 19, 2019, 06:03:44 pm »
In the process of nuclear fission, energy is released therefore mass is lost.
It can be calculated with .

As for the mass defect, how exactly is that calculated?
I know it is equal to the mass before-mass after.
But does the mass before include the incident neutron that split the nucleus?
I understand that the mass afterwards includes the nuclides and neutrons.
