6-10Binary Nuclear ReactionsChap. 613. In a particular neutron-induced fission of 235U, 4 prompt neutrons are producedand one fission fragment is 121 Ag. (a) What is the other fission fragment? (b)How much energy is liberated promptly (i.e., before the fission fragments beginto decay)? (c) If the total initial kinetic energy of the fission fragments is 150MeV, what is the initial kinetic energy of each? (d) What is the total kineticenergy shared by the four prompt neutrons.Solution:(a) The fission fragments are235U+In --+ 4(ln)+121 Ag+lllRh92 0 0 47 45.(b) The prompt energy emission is the Q-value for the above reaction, namely
