binding energy


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Acronyms, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

bind·ing en·er·gy

energy that would be released if a particular atomic nucleus were formed through the combination of individual protons and neutrons.
Synonym(s): fusion energy

binding energy

1 the amount of energy required to separate a nucleus into its individual nucleons.
2 the energy released as the nucleus forms from nucleons.

binding energy

The minimum energy needed to dissociate an atomic nucleus into neutrons and protons—neutron binding energies (BEs) remove neutrons from the nucleus; proton BEs remove protons from the nucleus; electron BEs remove electrons.

bind·ing en·er·gy

(bīnd'ing en'ĕr-jē)
The force of attraction that holds an electron in its corresponding orbital shell.
