Q: In the options given below, let E denote the rest mass energy of a nucleus and n a neutron. The correct option is

(A) E (236U92 ) > E (137I53 ) + E (97Y39 ) + 2E (n)

(B) E (236U92) < E (137I53 ) + E (97Y39) + 2E (n)

(C) E (236U92 ) < E (140Ba56 ) + E (94Kr36) + 2E (n)

(D) E (236U92) < E (140Ba56 ) + E (94Kr36) + E (n)

Ans: (A)

Sol: Rest mass of Parent nucleus should be greater than the rest mass of daughter nuclei . Hence Correct option is (A)
