```							Assuming that about 200MeV of energy is released per fission of . 92U235 nuceli, the mass of U235 consumed per day in a fission ractor of power 1 megawatt will be approximately . (2356×1023)(27×1020)=1.058g=1g

```							Energy released per disintegration =200 MeV= 200×(1.6×10 ^−13)J=3.2×10^−11 JTotal Energy required =1 MW= 10^6 J/sNo. of integrations required =N= 10^6 / 3.2×10^-11 = 3.125 × 10^16. Moles (n) = N / Avocado's N = 5.188×10−8 moles/s Mass consumption =nM= 1.22×10^−5 gms/sTotal consumption in a day =1.22×10 ^−5 gm/s×(24×3600)=1.053 gms Efficiency = 80%. Hence, required answer = 1.053×100/80 = 1.31gm.
