Looking at the fission of Uranium 235, the typical end product will be Barium 141 and Krypton 92, and 3 neutrons.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From this, we can calculate the energy that the fission gives off, by taking the difference in mass of the product and "reactant", and use the equation of E=mc^{2}.

But what i see from the above, there isn't any difference in mass. Or am I missing out something here? Someone enlighten me please. Thanks
