Masses of Light Nuclei from Nuclear Disintegration Energies


Values of the atomic masses from n^1 to F^(20) have been derived from the Q-values of nuclear reactions with a procedure of statistical adjustment. Tables are given of several fundamental mass differences, the most probable Q-values, and the atomic masses. Some disparity with the mass spectroscopic results is noted.
