Solution: The easiest fusion reaction to initiate is21H + 31H → 42He + 10nCalculate the energy released per  42He nucleus produced and per mole of  42He produced. The atomic masses are 21H, 2.01410 u; 31H, 3.01

Problem

The easiest fusion reaction to initiate is

21H + 31H → 42He + 10n

Calculate the energy released per  42He nucleus produced and per mole of  42He produced. The atomic masses are 21H, 2.01410 u; 31H, 3.01605 u; and 42He, 4.00260 u. The masses of the electron and neutron are 5.4858 X 10-4 u and 1.00866 u, respectively.
