Strong Coupling Constant, Reduced Compton Wavelength of Nucleon, Beta Stability Line, Semi-Empirical Mass Formula (SEMF).


With reference to ‘reciprocal’ of the strong coupling constant and ‘reduced Compton's wavelength’ of the nucleon, we make an attempt to understand the background of nuclear charge radius, binding energy and stability.
