EEE 460 Nuclear Power Engineering Spring 2012 EEE460-Homework K. E. Holbert Remember : Homework is expected to be turned in on time. Presentation and methods for arriving at the answer are just as important as the mathematical answer; solutions should be neat and logical. For complete credit: (1) show all work, and (2) box the answer and include the units. Students may work together on the homework, but copying is unacceptable. Important note : Some calculations in this course (e.g., mass defect) require the use of ~9 significant figures when atomic/nuclear data are used . Homework Assignment #1
