When a neutron is captured by a nucleus of uranium-238, the event shown
92 U 1
+ 0n → 239
92 U The uranium-239 then undergoes a series of decays:
92 U 32. decay I → 239
93Np decay II → In both decays I and II, the type of emitted particle is
D. an alpha particle
a proton 19 239

spectrum produced is
D. a continuous spectrum
an absorption spectrum
a bright-line spectrum
an emission spectrum Use the following information to answer the next three questions.
In 1939, four German scientists, Otto Hahn, Lise Meitner, Fritz Strassmann,
and Otto Frisch, made an important discovery that ushered in the atomic age.
They found that a uranium nucleus, after absorbing a neutron, splits into two
fragments that each have a smaller mass than the original nucleus. This
process is known as nuclear fission.
There are many possible fission reactions that can occur, two of which are
I + 235
92 U → 236
92 U → 141
56Ba + 92
36 Kr + 3 1 n + energy

0 The value of x in reaction II is
1 20 Use the following additional information to answer the next two questions.
The measurements given below indicate that the uranium-235 nucleus has a
smaller mass than the mass of a corresponding number of free protons and
neutrons. This difference in mass is called the mass defect.
Einstein’s concept of mass-energy equivalence, E = mc2, can be used to
predict the energy that binds a nucleus together by using the mass defect.
mass of uranium-235 nucleus = 3.9021 × 10–25 kg
mass of proton = 1.6726 × 10–27 kg
mass of neutron = 1.6749 × 10–27 kg
10. The mass defect of uranium-235, expressed in scientific notation, is b × 10–w kg.
The value of b is __________.
