 Homework Statement:

Carbon12 nucleus, has a mass of 11.9967u. Given: proton mass = 1.00728 u;
neutron mass = 1.00866 u
Calculate the mass defect of carbon12 nucleus.
 Relevant Equations:
 N/a
My attempt: Proton 1.00728ux6+ Neutron 1.00866ux6=12.09564u
12.09564u11.9967u=0.09894u
E=mc^2 E=0.09894x(3.00x10^8ms^1)^2
12.09564u11.9967u=0.09894u
E=mc^2 E=0.09894x(3.00x10^8ms^1)^2
