## Nuclear Energy Release.

How many fissions per second occur in a 200MW Uranium reactor? Assume 200MeV are released per fission. 200MW is equivalent to 200x10^{6} Joules/second

200x10^{6} J/s is equivalent to

200x10^{6} J/s / (200x10^{6} eV/fission * 1.6x10^{-19} J/eV)

= 6.25x10^{18} fissions/second
