Categorize the type of neutron source used in problems 32

through 43. For this purpose, use the flow chart as shown below and find the

box that best matches the source of neutron used in the above problems. In this

figure, 1-D for example, stands for neutron diffusion equation in a one

dimensional medium.

problems 32

Consider a plane neutron source emitting So

neutrons/s_cm2

in a nonmultiplying, infinite, homogenous medium. The material of the medium

has high scattering and low absorption cross section for neutrons. Find an

expression for neutron flux in terms of D and L of the medium.
