[answered] Calculate the macroscopic thermal neutron absorption cross


PLEASE SEE ATTACHED

Calculate the macroscopic thermal neutron absorption cross section for natural uranium. (ignore the trace amounts of234U; the a/o of235U in natural uranium is .72, and the a/o of the238U is .9928)?(30 points)

  1. Calculate the macroscopic thermal neutron absorption cross section for uranium enriched to 5% a/o235U.(30 points)
  2. Calculate the mean free path for scattering of neutrons in light water. The scattering cross-section for water is 103 barns and the number density of water is .03343x1024atoms/cm3.?(15 points)
  3. Plot on an Excel graph the change in the absorption cross section of10B over the temperature range of 68?F to 600?F. Assume the microscopic absorption cross-section of10B is 3840 barns at 68?F.?(25 points)
