Textbook Problem

Neutrons from a source (perhaps the one discussed in the preceding problem) bombard natural molybdenum, which is 24 percent 98Mo. What is the energy output of the reaction 98 Mo + n 99 Mo + γ ? The mass of 98MB is given in Appendix A: Atomic Masses, and that of 99Mo is 98.907711 u.

To determine

The energy output of the given reaction

  M98o+nM99o+γ

Explanation

Given info:

  mM98o=97.905406u

  mM99o=98.907711u

  mn=1.008665u

Formula used:

The output energy can be determined by using Einstein's energy relation as

  E=Δmc2 .

  E=massofreactant-massofproduct×c2
