Appunti ed esercizi di Fisica del Reattore nucleare elaborati dell'ing. Giorgio Bertucelli.

A relatively stationery U235 nucleus is bombarded by a 1 MeV neutron, causing it to fission. Two neutrons are ejected and Xe¹4° appears as one of two fission fragments. Write the reaction and compute the energy released.


Solution


We anticipate the radioactive decay of the wo fission fragments:
