Solutions

Chapter 32, Problem 32.19QAP
Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The value of average kinetic energy for thermal neutrons population is approximately 0.04eV is to be proved.

Concept introduction:

The kinetic energy is defined as the energy which is possessed by object when it is in motion.

The energy of the neutrons is represented by the following equation-

K.E.=32KT ………………(1)

Where,

K = Boltzmann constant = 1.39×1023J/K

T = room temperature = 298K
