Step 1 of 3

11.13  Alpha Decay: o yx  42He 2++ y-x-2 o 42e = alpha particle  Beta Particle: o yx  0-1 + yx+1 o 0 e = beta particle -1  Positron Emission: o yx  0+1e + yx-1 0 o +1 = positron  Energy of a nuclear reaction o E= mc 2 o E = energy o M= mass lost o C= speed of light (3x10 m/sec)  Small amount of mass equals a large amount of energy  Fermi and serge were first to attain nuclear energy o Sustained nuclear fission chain reaction  Nuclear fission: 1. Bombard nuclear with neutron 2. Atom splits into two smaller atoms a. Releases more neutrons 3. Neutrons collide with even more nuclei a. Causes a chain reaction  Each reaction releases energy, the mass that is lost turns into that energy  Manhattan Project: creating the nuclear bomb o How to sustain a nuclear fission reaction: Chicago  Critical mass (4kg)  Probability of neutron colliding with nuclei is very small; must increase the size of the pile to 4kg to improve the probability of collision o How to enrich Uranium-235: Oak ridge  99% non-fissionable U-238, 0.7% fissionable U-235 in natural  Need 90% pure U-235  UF-6 is a gas at temp > 54 degrees C  235UF-6 i
