Electric potential energy and gravitational potential energy of Deuterium nuclear?

  1. Nov 30, 2010 #1
    1. Is it possible to caculate the electric potential energy and the gravitational potential energy between two nucleon of deuterium (1 proton, 1 neutron), if we know the binding energy of deuterium is 2.23 (MeV), and the distance between them is 1 (fm)?
    Please help me! I'm really confused about this exercise :(
    Thanks in advance




    2. Relevant equations:



    3. The attempt at a solution
    Can i use the liquid drop model to solve this exercise?
