Average Binding Energy |

Using the atomic masses and atomic binding energies from your TON, is it
possible to determine the "average binding energy per nucleon" by dividing the atomic binding energy by the atomic mass (ie, E/A) ? I have tried this with Fe-56, and it works aout at about 8.80 MeV, which is right, but I request clarification on wether this a valid way to calculate average binding energy per nucleon. Using just the nucleon number (E/56) gives a slightly lower value of 8.79 MeV. |

IMHO, E/56 must be correct which gives 8.79 MeV.
If you use E/A, it double counts the binding energy. Since A is reflected with BE already. |
