(a) Calculate the energy released in the neutron−induced fission reaction n + 235 U → 92 Kr + 142 Ba+2 n ,given m ( 92 Kr ) = 91.926269 and m ( 142 Ba ) = 141.916361   u .(b) Confirm that the total number at nucleons and total charge are conserved in this reaction.

To determine

(a)

The energy released in the neutron-induced fission reaction n+U235K92r+B142a+2n given m( K92r ) =91.926269 u and m( B142a )=141.916361u?

Explanation

Given info:

m(n)=1.0086649 um(U235)=235.0439299um(K92r)=91.926269 um(B142a)=141.916361uEnergy of 1 u = 931

To determine

(b)
