Enriched uranium: uranium with more than 0.7 % uranium 235. Uranium 238 is not enriched uranium.
Enriched uranium is an uranium with more than 0,7 % uranium 235.
Uranium is enriched in the isotope uranium-235, producing uranium-238 as waste.
Uranium can be enriched to 99,9 %.But usually, for the use in nuclear reactors, the enrichment is under 20 %.
Plutonium and enriched uranium are different materials.Enriched uranium is uranium with a concentration of the isotope 235U greater than the natural concentration of 0,7 %.
Uranium is toxic and radioactive; the highly enriched uranium has a risk of criticality.
Uranium will blast only when a mass of enriched uranium attain the critical mass.
Some nuclear power reactors work with low enriched uranium; CANDU reactors work with natural uranium.
Only if these missiles transport bombs with enriched uranium.
divide 140 by the atomic weight of the uranium you want to know about. it will be different if you are asking about natural, enriched, or depleted uranium and how much its enriched or depleted.
Disadvantages of enriched uranium:- it is very difficult to prepare- can be used for bombs- the price is prohibitive- need of a complicate and expensive technology
A bomb containing highly enriched uranium (in the isotope 235U) as explosive.
