The basic raw material of the nuclear power plant is
The primary fuel used in nuclear power plants is
Atomic number of an element in the periodic table represents the numbers of
The mass number of a substance represents the sum of total number of
Which of the following is not identical for an atom and an isotope?
The mass of electron as compared to that of neutron is
Which of the following energy acts as a glue which binds the protons and neutrons together in the nucleus?
The energy associated with the mass defect is known as the binding energy of the nucleus. This energy acts as a ‘glue’ which binds the protons and neutrons together in the nucleus.
How many fast neutrons are produced on the average as a product of reaction of each fission of U-235?
The energy released during the fission of one atom of U-235 in MeV is about
When any uranium atom undergoes a fission process, about 2.5 neutrons having kinetic energy of the order of 2 MeV are generally produced and the energy generated by fission is of the order of 200 MeV per atom fissioned.
Uranium 238 is represented as 92U238. What does it mean?
A = mass
= number of proton + number of neutron
Z = atomic number = number of protons
∴ Z = 92 = np
and nn= 238 - 92 = 146
