Two beams of monoenergetic neutrons with energy equal 1eV intersect at an angle of 90 degrees. The density of neutrons in both beams is 2x10^8n/cm3.
a) Calculate the intensity (current) of each beam.
b) Calculate the neutron flux where the two beams intersect.
c) Calculate the neutron current where the two beams intersect.
Because, energy of neutron,
E = 1eV = 1.6*10^(-19) J = (1/2)*m*v^2
m = mass of a neutron = 1.67*10^(-27) kg
v = velocity of a neutron
=> v = sqrt(2*E/m) = ...
This solution includes calculations and answers for each of the three parts.
