E/Nucleon = mc^2Wherem= number of protons*mass of protons+Number of neutrons*the mass of a neutronFor 48Ti, Protons = 22, Neutrons = 26. Protons and Neutrons weigh almost equal to 1.673*10^-27 kgWhile 1 amu = 1.661*10^-27 kgTherefore,m= {(22+26)*1.673*10^-27}-{47.9359*1.661*10^-27} = 6.8247*10^-28 kgc= speed of light = 3*10^8 m/sThen,the Binding energy per nucleon = {6.8247*10^-28*(3*10^8)^2}/48 = 1.28*10^-12 J
