NEET Physics Nuclei Questions Solved


In a fission reaction U92236X117+Y117+n+n, the binding energy per nucleon of X and Y is 8.5 MeV whereas of U236 is 7.6 MeV. The total energy liberated will be about

(a) 200 KeV                         (b) 2 MeV
(c) 200 MeV                         (d) 2000 MeV

(c) E=8.5×234-7.6×236=195.4 MeV=200 MeV
