That question pissed me off. We learned that moderators slow down neutrons. So how is it elastic?? I just put down what i learned that kinetic energy of the neutrons decreases and gets trannsfered to the moderator atoms but no clue
It's elastic because a lot of the every is given to the moderator nuclei.

Yeah I was stumped when they asked about elastic collisions in the moderator... Wtf?

And what is an ideal gas?

To anyone who did the Medical Option, did you include any specific values for how much the force or pressure is amplified by in the 6 mark question on the ear or did you just explain when and how it's amplified by each part of the ear?

What did everyone get for the value of V for the point where 2m0 is on the graph?

Definitely the used fuel rods. They're CRAZY radioactive.
Why didn't I put that? For some reason I thought the question was asking about the fuel rods, so you didn't have to say it and instead talked about an excess of neutrons, but in retrospect that was really really stupid. What an idiot. That's 1 or 2 marks I easily could have got.

38 marks for a B?
I already have 367UMS, therefore i need 53UMS to get a B overall. So i would say with a solid 38, and however many more i doubted myself for, this should get me in.

I said "A gas that obeys Boyle's law, the Pressure law, and Charles's law. It is a theoretical model used to model real gases."

I've since looked it up and a popular definition online is "a theoretical gas that obeys Boyle's Law at all temperatures" or words to that effect. So hopefully I'll get half marks

You're right, they were talking about the spent fuel rods i.e the neutron rich daughter nuclei, saying fuel rods doesn't mean anything.

The neutron passes Ek on to the moderator, and slows down to become a thermal neutron after about fifty collisions.
How is that 'elastic'? I said that because I had no idea, but it goes explicitly against what was stated in the question.

What did people get for the energy release on the 1st question? I think mine was around 230 Mev.... can't remember exactly.

Yeah I only need 60 ums in this for my b so should be ok (fingers crossed)
Yeah, it's such a nice feeling! Ouch at 120UMS for an A.... I did re-sit Unit 4 to try for the A but i haven't done it. I'm over the moon with a B though, i haven't found it easy this year.

Ideal gas with molecules which are identical, no intermolecular forces, negligible volume and random motion :confused:
