NPTEL plateform Nuclear Physics remain a subject of interests since the development of modern physics in early 19th century for all the scholars. Dr. H C Verma, who retired Professor of physics from Department of Physics,IIT Kanpur prepared many video Read more
The Rutherford and his co workers gave the first evidence about the nuclear size through the famous alpha particle scattering experiment. The minimum distance at which kinetic energy of alpha particle becomes equal to the potential energy of the system, Read more
The nuclear mass of the nucleus is defined here, how one can calculate it, explained. The atomic mass unit (a.m.u.) and in terms of Kg the nuclear mass.
The simple definition of Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Density is discussed in this video lecture. As you know the scale of nuclear energy that we measure in terms of MeV explained. Then after the nuclear density is described from which Read more
Pauli’s Spin Formalism and Parity of Nuclei are discussed in this video lecture. Pauli’s spin operator is defined in terms of the spin vector. Further Spin operator components is defined in terms of matrices of 2×2 rank. Pauli’s spinor that Read more
Angular momentum of the nucleus is denoted by I, that is in general vector sum of the total orbital angular momentum L and Total spin angular momentum S. When I am saying total, it means for all the the nucleons. Read more
In this video lecture the basic concept of binding energy and binding energy per nucleon is discussed with some numerical examples. The role of binding energy in the nuclear stability and how it is relate with the packing fraction explained.
In this video lecture Packing Fraction is discussed. How it can be defined and its physical interpretation. How nuclear stability can be explained with the help of packing fraction. In the next video i will discuss about the Binding energy Read more
