I had a homework question I am really stuck on-
How do you calculate neuron flux

Normally one solves the neutron diffusion equation for the reactor.

What is the definition of the neutron flux, as opposed to current?

Also, homework problems need to be posted in the appropriate homework forum, which in this case would be the Engineering, Comp Sci, & Technology HW forum.
