Textbook Problem

(a) Calculate the energy released in the neutron- Induced fission reaction n + 235 U 92 K r + 142 B a + 2 n , given m(92Kr) = 91.926269 u and m(142Ba)= 141.916361 u. (b) Confirm that the total number of nucleons and total charge are conserved in this reaction.

To determine

(a)

The energy released in the neutron induced fission reaction.

Explanation

Formula used:

The neutron induced fission reaction is given as,

  n+235U92Kr+142Ba+2n

The mass difference is given as,

  Δm=m(n)+m(235U)m(92Kr)m(142Ba)2m(n)

The energy released in the neutron induced fission reaction is given as,

  E=(Δm)c2={m(n)+m( 235U)m( 92Kr)m( 142Ba)2m(n)

To determine

(b)

The conformation that the number of nucleons and the total charge is conserved during the reaction.
