Expert Answer:

Dear student
Nuclear force is the force which acts between the nucleons of a nucleus which binds it together and gives it a stability. Now in order to break theis nucleus, we shall have to supply some energy. So, the energy required to break the nucleus is called its binding energy.
Hope this helps.
