Potential energy curves are a useful tool for making sense of nuclear processes such as alpha-decay, fission, and fusion. The potential energy curve for each different type of nucleus is different and depends on the number of protons and neutrons.

1.Describe why the potential energy cure for a nucleus has this type of shape
2. How can you tell which curve has the largest number of protons?
3. Smallest number of protons?
4. Takes the most energy to add another proton
5. what nucleus would release the most amoun t of energy if fissioned
6. would likely undergo alpha-decay the soonest
7. most stable
