I was doing my homework and really got stuck on one question. Not looking for just an answer as that is useless, I really want to understand how to do this problem as I have no idea how to involve some of the givens.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

UO_2 is a common fuel for reactors. If the fuel is enriched to 4 atomic percent U-235 and the density is 10.98g/cc, calculate the absorption rate density and the fission rate density in the Uranium mixture, assuming that the 2200m/s flux is 2x10^12 n/cc*s and the fuel temperature is 600 degrees Celsius.
