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.
