This set of Power Plant Engineering Multiple Choice Questions & Answers (MCQs) focuses on “Fission Analysis – II”.
1. The half-life of H3 radioisotope is?
a) 12.26 yr
b) 5730 yr
c) 76 min
d) 28.1 yr
Explanation: The Half-life of tritium radioisotope is 12.26 years.
2. Readily fissile isotopes have ___________ half-lives.
c) short & long
d) none of the mentioned
Explanation: As the isotopes are fissile, naturally they will have more half-life.
3. The unit superseding Curie as the unit of Radioactivity is?
d) None of the mentioned
Explanation: Becquerel signifies number of disintegrations per second, much similar to the unit Curie.
4. A series of radioactive fissions is called a _____________
a) Fission Row
b) Fission Chain
c) Fission Column
d) None of the mentioned
Explanation: A series of radioactive fission reactions is called a Fission Chain.
5. Beta decay is usually accompanied by?
a) alpha decay
b) beta decay
c) gamma decay
d) gamma radiation
Explanation: The entire beta decay process involves the release of gamma radiation apart from various factors.
6. The amount of energy in MW-days produced of each metric tonne of fuel is?
a) fuel ignition
b) fuel burnup
c) fuel Chain
d) fuel Column
Explanation: Fuel burnup is the amount of energy in MW-days produced of each metric tonne of fuel.
