### On the Role of Fermi Gas Model in Understanding the Binding Energy of Stable Atomic Nuclides

#### Abstract

Considering the famous Fermi gas model of nucleus, it is possible to show that, for stable atomic nuclides starting from Z=30, magnitude of nuclear binding energy is approximately equal to the magnitude of proton’s kinetic energy. In general, when the magnitude of nuclear binding energy approaches (*Z-2+sqrt*[*Z/30*])*19.78 MeV* isotopes of inclined to attain stability.
