@JonCuster Thanks for your reply, I don't understand what you mean, $m_N$ is mass and hence is measured in kg. We don't use natural units in this course so $c \ne 1$. All I would like to know is if there is one person out there that agrees that in the formula for the $Q$-value it should be $m_n$ and NOT $m_N$?

@Andrei OKAY, but apart from that the answer is fine, right?
