At the beginning of Section $30.6,$ a fission process is illustrated in which $^{235} \mathrm{U}$ is struck by a neutron and undergoes fission to produce $^{144} \mathrm{Ba}, 89 \mathrm{Kr}$ , and three neutrons. The measured masses of these isotopes are 235.043930 u $\left(^{235} \mathrm{U}\right)$ $143.922953 \mathrm{u}\left(^{144} \mathrm{Ba}\right), 88.917630 \mathrm{u}\left(^{89} \mathrm{Kr}\right),$ and 1.0086649 $\mathrm{u}$ (neutron). (a) Calculate the energy (in MeV) released by each fission reaction. (b) Calculate the energy released per gram of$^{235} \mathrm{U},$ in $\mathrm{MeV} / \mathrm{g} .$

Atomic physics is the field of physics that studies atoms as an isolated system of electrons and an atomic nucleus. It is primarily concerned with the arrangement of electrons around the nucleus and the processes by which these arrangements change. The theory of quantum mechanics, a set of mathematical rules that describe the behaviour of matter and its interactions, provides a good model for the description of atomic structure and properties.

In physics, nuclear physics is the field of physics that studies the constituents and interactions of atomic nuclei. The most commonly known applications of nuclear physics are nuclear power generation and nuclear weapons technology, but the research has provided application in many fields, including those in nuclear medicine and magnetic resonance imaging, ion implantation in materials engineering, and radiocarbon dating in geology and archaeology.

So in this question, we look it official process process is illustrated in being a subsection silicon. Sex where uranium is stuck is struck by a neutral, isn't it? Undergoes vision. So there's first write downs equation for this reaction, we have just have green in alas, a neutral hurry. And he comes, varies sinks. So the measure mass of thes elements are mostly Kim, and we want to calculate how much energy is released. So Dr M equals the mess. So reactions. Is this a sushi mass of the reactions? Good. Minus the mess of the products. So wait, given most of sea stoppers either from the book or a supply. Just question class Trump, my nurse. This is good bye.

And you produced part being us. What? His energy Really screw rams forthis. Um, Okay, So what we have here is, um, and see what we have here. This's amount of energy Prunier clears if you want. He knows a lot of energy program against a person should know is we want to know how many grams how many nuclear C is in a gram. So you could act a number with her is one Brent divided by 200 city, five times the mass of the proton in this case US 2.555 times 10 to see. Oh, 21. So that's Harmony, Adams. We have harmony. Nucleus we have in a grant is in a week. You too, sis. This is nor clears Grand Times 173 quince three and bebe crew nucleus. This gives us well point for two. Trump's tan choosy. 23rd MTV Prue grab.
