(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

1_0_n + 235_92_U 140_54_Xe + 94_38_Sr + 2 1_0_n

Using the above reaction, determine the amount of energy.

2. Relevant equations

mi = 235.043925u + 1.008665u + 236.05259u

mf = 140.914406u + 93.915356U + 2(1.008665u) = 236.847092Uu

delta m = 0.794502

E = deltam(c^2) = (0.794505u)(931.5MeV/c^2/u)c^2 = 740.078613

3. The attempt at a solution

See above in part. My answer is incorrect. I double checked my work, and I got the same answer. Can anybody figure out what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.
