Earlier in the chapter we learned that the macroscopic ssion cross section of a nuclear fuel rod Sf.


Earlier in the stipulation we knowing that the macroscopic ssion cantankerous minority of a nuclear fuel rod Σf depends on its flatten of enhancement, and that the macroscopic ssion cantankerous minority is normally measured in cm−1. Suppose that the middle enhancement of the uranium in a nuclear fuel rod is 3%. If the fuel rod is made out of uranium dioxide (UO2), what is the macroscopic ssion cantankerous minority of the fuel in the fuel rod?
