Nuclear Liquid Drop Model

  1. Jan 30, 2010 #1
    I have a number of difficult questions regarding this topic!

    1. How to find the coeffients of the Liquid Drop model?

    I have a table of atoms with thier masses, and total binding energies.
    Do I just fit the curve of the B/A vs A to get the coefficients?

    2. In a Liquid Drop model, what would be the Z/A ratio for the most stable nuclei of the nucleons were not fermions?

    This question seems nonsensical to me, since an inifinte number of bosons can occupy one state!

    Is this homework? If so, then it should go in Homework & Coursework Questions.
