Question

The energy released by fission from 2g of 23592U in kWh is (the energy released per fission is 200MeV):

A
4.556 x 107
B
4.556 x 104
C
4.556 x 106
D
4.556 x 105
Solution
Verified by Toppr

Number of atoms in 2g of 23592U=2235×NA where NA is avogadro number

=2235×6.023×1023

Energy per fission =200 MeV
Therefore total energy (K)=2235×6.023×1023×200×106×1.6×1019J
Total Energy in kWh=k3600×103=4.556×104kWh
