Macroscopic Scattering Cross Section

Find the macroscopic scattering cross section of U02, assuming a density of 10 g/cm^3 (=10 000 kg/m^3) and (U) is approximately equal to 8.9 b and (0) is approximately equal to 3.75 b (10^-28 m^2).

Solution Preview

total microscopic cross-section sigma_t= (8.9+3.75)*10^(-28) m^2

mass density = ...

Solution Summary

This solution uses the formula macroscopic cross-section = N*sigma_t and includes calculations.
