Textbook Problem

The fission of uranium-235 releases 2 × 1010 kJ/ mol. Calculate the quantity of mass converted to energy in this process.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

In the fission of Uranium-235 releases 2×1010kJ/mol, the quantity of mass converted to energy has to be calculated.

Concept introduction:

During the nuclear reaction, either some mass is converted to energy or some energy may get converted to mass, and can be calculated from E=mc2

Explanation

The quantity of mass is converted in to energy is as given below,

Given

E=2×1010kJ/mol

c=3×108m/s

Use,

E=mc2

On substituting the values,

2×1010kJ/mol=m×(3×10
