Textbook Problem

Explain, in terms of conservation of momentum and energy, why collisions of neutrons with prawns will thermalize neutrons better than collisions with oxygen.

To determine

The reason due to which collisions of neutrons with protons will thermalize neutrons better than collisions with oxygen.

Explanation

Introduction:

Nuclear fission reaction is conversion of heavy nuclei into small nuclei. During this reaction energy is released but it can be controlled.

When heavy nucleon breaks into small nucleon, then neutron will be released during the reaction. The law of conservation of momentum suggest that when two object having kinetic energy strike each other, then the velocity transfer to each other. The condition is that both having same mass. When two different mass object strike, then momentum of heavy body will have less change in its velocity...
