Optimal mass formula and Coulomb energy of nuclei
Abstract
The Coulomb energies of nuclei are calculated on the basis of data from electromagnetic experiments. It is established that the substitution of the Coulomb energies calculated in this way into the formula for the nuclear masses results in loss in quality. On the other hand, the Coulomb energies obtained from the mass formula do not reproduce the nuclear dimensions sufficiently well. It is shown that a consistent description of the binding energies and the nuclear dimensions is possible on introducing the dependence of the mass number in the density parameters of the charge distribution.
