Calculate the disintegration energy Q for the fission of into two equal fragments. The masses you will need are
The disintegrated energy is .
The mass of
The mass of
The expression to calculate the disintegrated energy is given as follows.
Consider the fission reaction as given follow.
Calculate the disintegrated energy.
Substitute for , for and for into equation (i).
Hence the disintegrated energy is .
Figure 43-15 shows an early proposal for a hydrogen bomb. The fusion fuel is deuterium, . The high temperature and particle density needed for fusion are provided by an atomic bomb “trigger” that involves a or fission fuel arranged to impress an imploding, compressive shock wave on the deuterium. The fusion reaction is
(a) Calculate Q for the fusion reaction. For needed atomic masses, see Problem 42. (b) Calculate the rating (see Problem 16) of the fusion part of the bomb if it contains 500 kg of deuterium, 30.0% of which undergoes fusion.
Question: A nucleus undergoes fission and breaks into two middle-mass fragments, . (a) By what percentage does the surface area of the fission products differ from that of the original nucleus? (b) By what percentage does the volume change? (c) By what percentage does the electric potential energy change? The electric potential energy of a uniformly charged sphere of radius r and charge Q is given by
