Im having some trouble interpreting the MCNP output file, more specificaly table 140 that describes reaction rates.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The problem of course is that the acctual reaction rates isnt written but rather things like total colissions, collions*weight, weight lost to capture etc.

How do I convert for instance the weight lost to capture into a acctual reaction rate?

The information I want to find is the breeding ratio of u-233 from thorium so I want.

[Th-232(n,gamma)-Pa-233(n, absorbtion)]/U-233(n, absorbtion).

i.e production rate of u-233 divided by consumption rate of u-233. But I dont have the slighest clue how to figure that out from the table 140 information? I have attached the table.
