Question 1

When a neutron collides with a uranium-235 nucleus it can induce a variety of fission reactions. One such reaction is

U + n → Xe + Sr + 2 n

The following mass values are known:

Xe:139.921620 u
Sr:93.915367 u
U:235.043924 u
n:1.008665 u
How much energy is released in this reaction? (1 u = 931.5 MeV/c2)
◦ 65.7 MeV
◦ 202 MeV
◦ 185 MeV
◦ 32.6 MeV
◦ 98.6 MeV

Question 2

When a neutron collides with a uranium-235 nucleus it can induce a variety of fission reactions. One such reaction is

U + n → Xe + Sr + 2 n

The following mass values are known:

Xe:139.921620 u
Sr:93.915367 u
U:235.043924 u
n:1.008665 u
What mass of uranium is needed to produce a 10-kiloton yield? (1 u = 931.5 MeV/c2 = 1.66054 × 10-27 kg, 1-kiloton yield = 5.0 × 1012 J)
◦ 0.57 kg
◦ 6.58 kg
◦ 1.10 kg
◦ 3.85 kg
◦ 0.66 kg

It is believed that the Incas used anesthesia. Evidence supports the theory that shamans chewed cocoa leaves and drilled holes into the heads of patients (letting evil spirits escape), spitting into the wounds they made. The mixture of cocaine, saliva, and resin numbed the site enough to allow hours of drilling.
