The neutron separation energy is defined as the energy required to remove a neutron from the nucleus. Obtain the neutron separation energy of the nuclei   from the following data:


Solution: The reaction for the neutron separation from the aluminum atom is 


We know that, the separation energy can be calculated as:


   

   

On the other hand

So, the energy of neutron separation will be:
 
     

Therefore to remove a neutron from the nucleus of energy is required.
