A heavy nucleus X of mass number A = 240 and binding energy per nucleon = 7.6 MeV is split into two nearly equal fragments Y and Z of mass numbers A1 = 110 and A2 = 130. The binding energy of each one of these nuclei is 8.5 MeV per nucleon. Calculate the total binding energy of each of the nuclei X, Y and Z, and hence the energy Q released per fission in MeV.
(1824, 935, 1105, 216)MeV
