Based on phenomenological analysis of the Λ binding energies in a set of Λ hypernuclei, the phenomenological potential well of Woods-Saxon form is obtained for the set of Λ hypernuclei. Then a similar potential is used to calculate binding energies in a set of hypernuclei. The conclusion from our calculation is that some hypernuclei can exist as long as the depth of the potential well in hypernuclei is larger than 20.
