Given :Vitrified canister equal 1.5 fuel assemblies (f.p. and MA; Capacity: 155 litres; weight: 490 kg; height: 1.3 m; diameter: 43 cm). An amount ofabout 1 TWh enough for a city of 500k for year takes two canisters.

Assume the average home requires an electrical power of 1.2kW, an average life expectancy of 75 years, and only power from nuclear energy. For such a homeowner, what would be the lifetime generation of vitrified high level waste (HLW) in kg and liters?

Particle A (mA = 1 kg) is given initial velocity 10 m/s to the right, while particle B (mB = 1:5 kg) is initially at rest. The coecient of restitution for any impact between A and B is 2/3 while the coecient of restitution for impact of either particle with either wall is 5/6. The particles slide along a smooth horizontal supporting surface. Compute the percentage of the kinetic energy remaining in the system of A and B at the...

An elevator has a weight capacity of 3000 lbs. Sixteen men get into the elevator. Given the weights of men are normally distributed with a mean of 172 lbs and a std dev of 29 lbs find the probability of these men exceeding the maximum weight, thus breaking the cable and plunging to their death. _________
