nuclear mass

nuclear mass

[′nü·klē·ər ′mas]
(nuclear physics)
The mass of an atomic nucleus, which is usually measured in atomic mass units; it is less than the sum of the masses of its constituent protons and neutrons by the binding energy of the nucleus divided by the square of the speed of light.
