The fission properties of are very similar to those of . The average energy released per fission is 180 MeV. How much energy, in MeV, is released if all the atoms in 1 kg of pure  undergo fission?

Solution: Number of atoms in 1 kg of pure Pu=

As average energy released in fission is , the total energy released is
