The binding energy is a energy that holds the nucleus together.
Thus, more binding energy will give more stable nuclei. Here alpha particle has more binding energy so it will be more stable than deutron.

Binding energy per nucleon for deuteron 1H2 is 1.1 MeV and that for helium 2He4 is 7 MeV respectively. Energy released in MeV when two deutrons fuse to form a helium nucleus 2He4 is (Write upto two difgits after the decimal point.)
The binding energy of deutron 1H2 is 1.112MeV per nucleon and an alpha particle 2He4 has a binding energy of 7.047MeV per nucleon. Then, in the fusion rection 1H2+1H2→2He4+Q, the energy Q released is
(take mass of 1H2=2.01478u;
mass of 2He4=4.00338u)
The binding energies of a deuteron and an α−particle are 1.125MeV,7.2MeV per nucleon respectively. The more stable of the two, is
The binding energy per nucleon for a deuteron and an α−particle is x1 and x2 respectively. The energy Q released in the reaction 1H2+1H2→2He4+Q, is
What is meant by binding energy? If the masses of proton, neutron and alpha (α) particles are 1.00728amu,1.00867amu and 4.00150amu respectively, then find the binding energy per nucleon of alpha particle. [1amu=931MeV].
