Unformatted text preview: 44 Nuclear Energetics Chap. 4 7. What is the Qvalue (in MeV) for eachof the following possible nuclear reactions? Which are exothermic and which are endothermic? 19B+ 'Y 9B + 0 In 5
1 9 IP + 4Be + ~Be+ Ip ~Be+ ~H ~Be+ iH ~Li + ~He Solution:
Consider the 9Be(p,r)10Breaction. The Qvalue is Q = {M(lH) + M(~Be) M(rB)} C2 = {1.00782503+ 9.0121821 10.0129370} (u) x 931.5 (MeV lu) = 6.586 MeV The other reactions are treated similarly. The results are tabulated below. 8. Neutron irradiation of 6Li can produce the following reactions. ~Li + 'Y gLi+An ~n+gLi ~He+ ~p ~He+ ~H ~H + ~He What is the Qvalue (in MeV) for eachreaction?
