"The 2200 m/s flux in an ordinary water reactor is 1.5*10^13 neutrons/cm^2*s. At what rate are the thermal neutrons absorbed by the water?"
The Attempt at a Solution
I know that absorption of a thermal neutron (a neutron in thermal equilibrium)...
I have a question about atmospheric photodissociation. I use methane as an example, but any atmospheric gas molecule would suffice.
Methane, CH4, has a photodissociation energy of 439 kJ/mole at 298oK, meaning that
CH4 + hv --> CH3 + H , hv<274nm.
It also has an “absorption...
