Textbook Problem

The energy produced by the fusion of a 1.00—kg mixture of deuterium and tritium was found in Example Calculating Energy and Power from Fusion. Approximately how many kilograms would be required to supply the annual energy use in the United States?

To determine

Approximately how many kilograms deuterium and tritium would be required to supply the annual energy use in the United States if the energy produced by the fusion of a 1.00-kg mixture of deuterium and tritium is 3.37×1014J ?

Explanation

Given info:

  E1kg=3.37×1014J/kg

Calculation:

Energy consumption in US per year is given by 1.05×1020J

Amount of kilograms deuterium and tritium required

  m=1.05×1020J3
