Isaac Nuclear Masterclass

Im currently doing a nuclear masterclass run by the university of york on Isaac physics. Is anyone else doing it as I need some help?
I am, what do you need help with? I could also use some too in some bits 😅

The only one I haven’t done is a question way back I’m module 3. What is the minimum mass of a neutron star and the density.
I can help you with all the other parts

That was the same one I needed help with and I managed to sort it out - on the previous questions the caption below "Correct!" gives the correct coefficient values (16.2 and 23 I think). Then the last question wants you to use the rounded answer from the mass question, convert it back to kilograms then use that to calculate density with the radius given if you use the correct coefficients . Idk why they decided to do it that way but it stumped me for ages

Thanks so much for your help. I had been using my accepted answer of 20 for the asymmetry term and hadn’t read the caption.
