    I aim for this thread to be used for higher level revision notes for this unit, PHYA5/2B

    If you arn't doing turning points and instead doing Astrophysics, Applied or Medical Physics - by all means feel free to post.

    Please feel free to post anything to do with the topics involved, from special relativity to Fission !!!!!!!!

    Hi,

    I'm confused with the Nuclear radius equation,

    R=roA^(1/3)

    is ro a constant or the initial radius of an isotope before it decays... in the book it says it's 1.05 fm, in one of the papers it says it is 1.3fm

    Ro is the radius of a nucleon (neutron or proton).
