The atomic number of uranium-235 is 92, its half-life is 704 million years and the radioactive decay of l kg of 235U releases 6.7X10^13 J. Generally, radioactive material is considered safe after 10 half-lives. Assume that a nuclear powerplant can convert energy from 235U into electricity with an efficiency of 35%, the electrical transmission lines operate at 90% efficiency, and flourescent lights operate at 22% efficiency. 1.) What is the overall efficiency of converting the energy of 235U into flourescent light? 2.) How much energy from 1 kg of 235U is converted into flourescent light?
