    semiempirical binding energy--coulomb approximation

    Hi, I've been stuck on this one thing in my textbook. For the coulomb approximation--as part of the semiempirical binding energy formula--it is given as: B<coul>=-a<coul>Z^2/A^(1/3) where: a<coul>=3/5*ke^2/R<0> The issue that I'm having is that the book and also online sources...

    Approximation

    Just wondering! I believe every consideration, every non-mathematical aspect of all of physics is approximate. Put otherwise, every discussion, all proofs, even base ideas of physics begin with assumption (some made explicit others implicit or unknown). Seems physics always begins with...
