The total thermal power generated in a nuclear power reactor is 1.5 GW.

How much uranium-235 does it consume in a year?

m(

E=mc

E=mc

1.5*10

Solving for m leaves me with .53 kg which come up incorrect in Mastering Physics.

__ANSWER__m(

^{235}U)=__-----__kg## Homework Equations

E=mc

^{2}## The Attempt at a Solution

E=mc

^{2}1.5*10

^{9}J*60sec*60min*24hr*365days=m*(3*10^{8}m/s)^{2}Solving for m leaves me with .53 kg which come up incorrect in Mastering Physics.
