(a) Calculate the nuclear binding energy per nucleon for the 79Kr nuclide (the atomic mass of 79Kr is 78.920083 amu).

(b) A nuclear reaction that has been proposed as a potential source of energy is the fusion of the nuclides of hydrogen (1H, atomic mass 1.007825035 amu) and deuterium (2H, atomic mass 2.014101779 amu), producing the nuclide of a helium-3 (3He, atomic mass 3.01602931 amu). Calculate the energy of this reaction per gram of 3He produced?
