Problem 30

A fi ssion reactor operates at the 1250-MWe level. Assumeall this energy comes from the (average) 200 MeVreleased by fi ssion caused by thermal neutron absorptionby 235U. At what daily rate is the mass of 235U used?(In practice, the energy conversion is not 100% effi -cient, nor is all the 235U in a fuel cell used.)

Chapter 1: Introduction Areas of Philosophy: Metaphysics – the study of the nature of reality Epistemology – the study of the nature of knowledge Logic – provides the rules for rational reflection Ethics – the study of the nature of value Introduction to Philosophy:  Why do people become philosophers o Illusoriness of the sense  What’s more real, the way it looks under the microscope or with naked eye th  Shift from myth to reason in 6 bce o Greeks became distrustful of Olympian gods o Philosophy was a substitute for traditional beliefs  No precise definition o Worldview/paradigm  Desire coherence and correspondence  Not contradiction  Comb/Fork example  Is there any truth out there, is meaning dependent upon us o Not just a theory  Like philosophy of dating, offense, business, etc.  An example is Stoicism: a way of explaining reality  Marcus Aurelius  State of blessedness comes from freedom of emotions and pleasure seeking  Passions create a disorderly condition in the soul o Love of wisdom  Wisdom: that which is permanent and unchanging  Fundamental laws of r
