Question

A nuclear power plant that was started in 1971 produces p (t) = 1 + αt kg Strontium-90 per year where t is the number of years since its inception. How much Strontium-90 produced from the start was left in 1992? Radioactive decay is described by n (t) = n0e^ (−kt), the half-life of Strontium-90 is 28 years and α = 1/10.

Answer #1

At typical nuclear power plants, refueling occurs every 23
months. Assuming that a plant has operated continuously since the
last refueling and
produces 1.9 GW of electrical power at an efficiency of 28%, how
much less massive are the fuel rods at the end of the 23 months
than at the start?
(Assume 30-day months.)

An accident at a nuclear power plant has left the surrounding
area polluted with radioactive material that decays naturally. The
initial amount of radioactive material present is 48 su(safe
units), and 5 months later it is still 28 su,
(a) Write a formula giving the amount A(t) of radioactive
material (in su) remaining after t months.
(b) What amount of radioactive material will remain after 8
months?
(c) How long will it be until A=1 su, so it is safe...

In March 2011, the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in
Japan experienced a meltdown; consequently, radioactive materials
were released into the environment. On the international Nuclear
Event Scale (INES) running from 0 (indicating an abnormal situation
with no safety consequences) to 7 (indicating an accident causing
widespread contamination with serious health and environmental
effects), the incident received a rating of 7. The only other
recorder level 7 incident is the Chernobyl (Ukraine) meltdown in
1986.
18. One of the radioactive...
