5 The energy released during the atomic explosion at Hiroshima was estimated to be equal to
that released by 20,000 tons of TNT. Assume that a total energy of 200 MeV is
released during a fission of a 235U nucleus and that a total energy of 3.8 x 109
released during detonation of 1 ton of TNT. Find the number of fissions which
occurred in the Hiroshima explosion and the total decrease in mass.
and 2.38 10^24 fissions
