What Went Wrong with the Atomic Mass Unit

Authors: Sjaak Uitterdijk

The atomic mass unit has already been applied for more than 200 years. The problem is that the amu now-a-days has been defined in two different ways: the Newtonian one and the one based on present physics by applying the magic energy mc2 and the magic atomic nuclear forces, interpreted as nuclear binding energy. This energy is posited as equal to mc2, without any motivation and as such violating the law of mass conservation.

Comments: 3 Pages. Version 2 and 3 show that the definition of the amu is wrong, not its application, as presented in version 1.
