Unformatted text preview: Solution: NOTE: In the text the period is incorrectly given as -2 s. This is physically impossible. The correct period should be -200 s. (a) First find the change in keff needed to produce the given period. From Eq. (10.17) we find 8k = .BTIT, where for 235u .BT = 0.083 s. Thus keff after the rod insertion is keff = 1 + ok = 1 + pr T (b) The reactivity insertion, from Eq. (10.14), is 0.999585 -1-0.0065 0.999585 = -0.0639($). July 24, 2002...
