Calculate Mass Defect of Nitrogen

  1. Dec 7, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    For the common isotope of nitrogen, 14N, calculate the mass defect.

    2. Relevant equations

    [tex]\Delta[/tex]M = Zmp + Nmn - M

    3. The attempt at a solution


    [tex]\Delta[/tex]M = .108516177

    Masteringphysics says this is wrong. says i may have made a rounding error? i have input three variations of this answer but all have been wrong.

    where am i making the mistake.
