Is the mass of an atomic nucleus greater or less than the sum of the masses of the nucleons composing it? Why don’t the nucleon masses add up to the total nuclear mass? 1. More; other energies are contained in a nucleus that the nucleon components don’t have. 2. Less; work must be done to separate a nucleus into its component nucleons. 3. More; a nucleus is larger than the sum of the nucleon components. 4. Less; some electrons disappear when the nucleon components form a nucleus.
