(b) A person stands next to the core. >No change would happen on the power but instead its possible that the person would get affected by the rays. (c) The temperature of the core is raised. >On raising the temperature power will increase because it will energise the reaction and the bobarding particles(neutron) and emmission of charge particles would increase. (d) A neutron source is brought close to the core. >Yes it will increase the power generation beacuse more neutron means more integration of uranium that means more energy release and hence more power generated. (e) An energetic electron beam impacts the core. >It wont increase the power, because electron is not that heavy as neutron is. (e) The reactor is run at high power for a long time. >At high power, reaction would go fast and hence power would increase. (g) The core is launched into outer space. >No effect on the reaction would take place it wount affect the generation of power.

(f) A sheet of cadmium is wrapped around the core. >cadmium can absorb neutrons which can reduce the reaction rate furthure,hence it would decrease the power generation. (g) The enrichment of the fuel is increased. >The enrichment of fuel would just make sure that reaction will go longer it wont increase the power generation.

    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.
