Homework Help: Fission products

  1. Nov 19, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    How do you calculate the rate at which atoms of a fission product are being produced directly if you are only given the thermal neutron flux and the radionuclide's fission yield% ?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I know the # of atoms of 235U but I am stuck

    can you relate the neutron flux to the production rate of neutrons & then the fission products production rate?
