Calculate the total electrostatic energy of a uranium 235 nucleus
total energy of charge distribution is
W(total)= W(inside)+ W(outside)
i found W(inside)= Q^2/(40pi (epsilon)R)
and W(outside)= Q^2/(8 pi (epsilon)R)
SO W(total)= 3(Q^2)/(20pi(epsilon)R)
Use the total energy of charge distribution to calculate the total electrostatic energy of a uranium 235 nucleus. It has 92 protons and a radius of about 7.0 femtometers?
