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

Side effects from substance abuse include nausea, dehydration, reduced productivitiy, and dependence. Though these effects usually worsen over time, the constant need for the substance often overcomes rational thinking.

In 1844, Charles Goodyear obtained the first patent for a rubber condom.

Did you know?

Though “Krazy Glue” or “Super Glue” has the ability to seal small wounds, it is not recommended for this purpose since it contains many substances that should not enter the body through the skin, and may be harmful.

Did you know?

There are major differences in the metabolism of morphine and the illegal drug heroin. Morphine mostly produces its CNS effects through m-receptors, and at k- and d-receptors. Heroin has a slight affinity for opiate receptors. Most of its actions are due to metabolism to active metabolites (6-acetylmorphine, morphine, and morphine-6-glucuronide).
