Problem 6E

Why will the escape of neutrons be proportionally less in a large piece of fissionable material than in a smaller piece?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 6E In a large piece of fissionable material, a neutron can travel longer distance through the material before escaping the material. The escape rate of neutrons is inversely proportional to length. Therefore, more is the length of the fissionable material, lower will be the escape rate.
