Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know that there are a number of different ways that uranium-235 can decay when a slow neutron collides with it.

I am trying to get a picture of all the possible reactions that can occur.

One is U-235+n --> Ba-144 + Kr-90 +2n

Another is: U-235 +n --> Xe-140 + Sr-94 +2n

Can anyone give me any more examples of how it can decay? Can anyone give me an example where three neutrons are produced?

What is the probability of each reaction occuring? The two I have here seem to be used pretty widely as examples, so I guess their probability would be higher than some others.

Many thanks,

Froskoy

EDIT: Just found U-235+n --> Xe-143 + Sr-90 + 3n... any others?
