Reactor Theory (Neutron Characteristics)
Reaction Rates Summary
The reaction rate is the number of interactions of a particular type occurring in a
cubic centimeter of material in a second.
The reaction rate can be calculated by the equation below.
R = 1 *
Over a period of several days, while the atom density of the fuel can be considered
constant, the neutron flux is directly proportional to reactor power.
The important information in this chapter is summarized below.
