31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Nuclei - 2 - Question 3

In a fission reaction

the binding energy per nucleon of X and Y is 8.5MeV whereas of 236U is 7.6 MeV. The totalenergy liberated will be about [1997]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Nuclei - 2 - Question 3

Binding energy
= 117 × 8.5 + 117 × 8.5 – 236 × 7.6
= 234 × 8.5 – 236 × 7.6
= 1989 – 1793.6 = 200 MeV
Thus, in per fission of Uranium nearly 200
MeV energy is liberated

31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Nuclei - 2 - Question 8

Atomic weight of Boron is 10.81 and it has two isotopes . Then the ratio  in nature would be        [1998]

Detailed Solution for 31 Year NEET Previous Year Questions: Nuclei - 2 - Question 8

Suppose that, The number of 10B type atoms = x and the number of 11B type atoms = y
Weight of 10B type atoms = 10x
Weight of 11B type atoms = 11y
Total number of atoms = x + y

∴  Atomic weight

⇒10x + 11y = 10.81x + 10.81y
⇒ 0.81x = 0.19y
