Textbook Problem

Confirm that each at the reactions listed for plutonium breeding just following Example 32.4 conserves the total number of nucleons, the total charge, and electron family number.

To determine

Confirmation that each of the reactions listed for plutonium breeding conserves the total number of nucleons, the total charge, and electron family number?

Explanation

Calculation:

We have the equation for plutonium breeding,

  U238+nU239+γU239N239p+β+υeN239pP239u+β+υe

  1. U238+nU239+γ
  2. Nucleons

      LHS = 238 + 1 = 239

      RHS = 239

      Hence verified.

    Total charge

      LHS = 92

      RHS = 92

      Hence verified
