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

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
