Abstract

At nuclear scale, we present three heuristic relations pertaining to strong and electroweak coupling constants. With these relations, close to beta stability line, it is possible to study nuclear binding energy with a single energy coefficient of magnitude ( 1 α s )[ e 2 4π ε 0 R 0 ]10.0 MeV. With reference to up and down quark masses, it is also possible to interpret that, nuclear binding energy is proportional to the mean mass of [ ( 2 m u + m d ) and ( m u +2 m d ) ]10.0 MeV.
