Dear FLUKA experts,
I am a beginner of FLUKA and I tried to simulate energy deposition of protons. My purpose was to get the accurate value of energy deposition in the target, e.g., the energy deposition of a 100 MeV proton in water is 90 MeV (just an example, may not be accurate).
So I set a 20cm* 20cm* 20cm target and let the proton beam penetrate the target. The data in my .out file shown below.

After that, I learned this lecture and found
- Does this mean the value of energy deposition in my .out file is “9.764148484D-02”?
- I just set 1 bin in USRBIN card, would I get the accurate data of energy deposition?
Here is my .out file and .inp file.

Thank you so much for your attention!
