Suppose India had a target of producing by  of electric power, of which was to be obtained from nuclear power plants. Suppose we are given that, on an average, the efficiency of utilisation (i.e.conversion to electric energy) of thermal energy produced in a reactor was How much amount of fissionable uranium would our country need per year by  Take to be about .

Total electric power which is aimed to be produced by 2020 =

Power obtained from the nuclear power plant =

Energy required from the nuclear plant in one year=

Available electric energy per fission=

Required no. of fission per year =

Now, nuclei of have mass =

  Mass required to produce nuclei =
