ENERGY RELEASE FROM FISSION
The energy released in the decay chain of cesium-140 is calculated below.
The total decay energy is the sum of the energies of the two chains, or 9.73 MeV.
Distribution of Fission Energy
The average energy distribution for the energy released per fission with a thermal neutron in
uranium-235 is shown in Tables 6 and 7.
