1. Imagine that you have the endoplasmic
reticulum (ER) inside of a cell. Among its many
other functions, the ER stores calcium. Lets
say that the ER is permeable to Ca2+ and
Cl-, but not to a l

1.) You must work on your own.
2.) You may consult 2 pages of notes, and any tables we hand out.
3.) I will be available during the test for clarifications of questions. No hints.
4.) Each problem has equal weight
Problem 7
To understand this problem we first need to calculate the q value of the given

reaction.
Disreagarding the mass of the neutrino as negligible the equation for the q value becomes
Q=[ m ( n )m ( p )m ( e ) ] c 2
Q=[ 1.0086651.007270
Midterm sample poisoning problem
Fresh fuel is loaded into a reactor with an initial concentration of boron-10. Assume a completely thermal reactor and
constant flux.
1. Write the initial conditions and the differential equations for Xe-135, I-135 and B-1
