If a nucleus is in its first excited state, is its total rest energy then mc^2 + Eex1?
If m is the rest mass of the nucleus in its ground state and Eex1 is the energy difference between the first excited state and the ground state, the answer is Yes.
It's as I thought, then. But on quantum level, I've experienced that you can never be certain of anything. Thanks!
