One scheme to put nuclear weapons to nonmilitary use is to explode them underground in a geologically stable region and extract the geothermal energy for electricity production. There was a total yield of about $4,000$ MT in the combined arsenals in $2006 .$ If 1.00 MT per day could be converted to electricity with an efficiency of $10.0 \% :$.(a) What would the average electrical power output be?(b) How many years would the arsenal last at this rate?

a. $4.86 \times 10^{9} \mathrm{W}$b. 11 $\mathrm{y}$

problems. 61. Chapter 32 This is a problem about a nuclear weapon and nuclear energy. In 2000. Fix the total yelled Allah. Nuclear weapon is farther than the maximum and if we can use one, backed up a day and converted to electrical energy with the fishes, the temperature and with the power out put all this electric energy. So why Max Hump Day you call Eco's one neck tongue. Times 4.2 times Turn to the 15 draws on Become working with the temple from the efficiency So this is our energy output in one day. So the power output will be this energy rewarded by the time and the time should be a union or second you wonder there are 24 hours on me when I was there are 3 3000 and 600 seconds So this eco's 4.86 times 10 toe Nice words and in part of beer, he asks How many years with this? Ah, as a no last as its rate so forth and the Mac there it's There are four thought on the matter and if we use one next time today, so four cells in the Mac town wanted by 365 because 11 years
