Please answer clearly and completely.
1. What is transition energy?
2. Give 3 examples of β- decay.
3. What is (β-,γ) decay, write an example.
4. Hat is isomeric transition?
5. What is a conversion electron?
6. What is (EC, γ)? Describe the decay.
Two identical hypothetical nuclei, each with mass ( 3 - .0041) amu, fuse to form a nucleus with mass ( 5 - .00399) amu and a neutron, whose mass is about 1.000867 amu. How much energy would be given off if .58 kg of these nuclei fused?
Energy is released during a nuclear reaction due to a conversion between mass and energy. Mass is not conserved; the initial and final amounts are different. If a total of 1 gram of mass is "missing," how much energy has been released?
Scenario: A neutron in a nuclear reactor makes an elastic head-on collision with the nucleus of a uranium atom initially at rest.
(a) What fraction of the neutron's kinetic energy is transferred to the uranium nucleus? (The mass of the uranium nucleus is about 238 times the mass of the neutron.)
5. For an electron to be confined to a nucleus, its de Broglie wavelength would have to be less than 10^-14m. (a) What would be the kinetic energy of an electron confined to this region? (b) On the basis of this result, would you expect to find an electron in a nucleus? Explain.
Canadian nuclear reactors use heavy water moderators in which elastic collisions occur between the neutrons and deuterons of mass 2.0 u. What is the speed of a neutron, expressed as a fraction of its original speed, after a head-on, elastic collision with a deuteron which is initially at rest? What ...
In a nuclear submarine power plant, the temperature of the water in the reactor is above 100C. How is this possible? I believe it has to do with the cooling process of boiling water, but would like a little guidance. Thank you for your help!
