nuclear mass; liquid drop model; Coulomb repulsion; quark binding energy.
The purpose of this article is to determine the total quark binding energy which is consumed for binding the nucleons together in the nuclide from the Bethe-Weizsäcker formula (also called semi-empirical mass formula) inspired by the liquid-drop model. We will explain the nuclear structural form in the framework of the total energy consumed by the quark which causes binding energy between all nucleons in the nuclide.
