A Lithium-6 sample (m = 12,0 mg) which was isolated in ampule V = 200 cm3, was loaded in nuclear reactor and irradiated by neutrons for a long time. Calculate the maximal pressure in reactor, T = 400 K.
The equation is
Li + n = T + α
I calculated the energy of this reaction using formula ΔE = -Δmc2
4,78 MeV for 1 particle, and then calculated it for 12 mg of Lithium.
How can I transfer energy to pressure? I tried to use the kinetic energy but nothing came out of it. Is it possible to use thermodynamic laws?
