Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.170:30 ratio respectively. 70% U235 and 30% U238 because I wouldn’t be able to control the reactor if the whole reaction happened at once. If I was making a bomb, I would make it to be that there are no U238 nuclei and use all U235. The U238 would get int he way of the reaction.
