. The fission of U 92 235 releases 2.1 × 10 13 joules per mole of U 92 235 .

Calculate the energy released per atom and per gram of U 92 235 .

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Interpret the energy releases in fission per atom and per gram of U-235, if energy released per mol is 2.1×1013 Joules.

Concept Introduction:

Nuclear fusion of nuclide results in formation of nuclide with requirement of energy while fission reaction releases energy in the environment. Thus, energy released in magnitude by fusion reaction is lower than fission reaction.

Explanation

For 1 mol of uranium the released energy is = 2.1×1013Joules

1 mol = 6.02×1023 atom

Energy released per atom (2.1×1013 J/mol)/(6.023×1023 atom/mol)

= 3
