# If 25 Atomic Mass Units (U) of a Radioactive Material Are Destroyed in a Nuclear Reaction, How Much Energy is Released in Mev? - Science

Course

#### Question

If 25 atomic mass units (u) of a radioactive material are destroyed in a nuclear reaction, how much energy is released in MeV?

#### Solution

If 25 atomic mass units (u) of a radioactive material is destroyed in a nuclear reaction, then the amount of energy released in MeV is given by:
25xx931 = 23275 MeV (since 1 u = 931 MeV)

Is there an error in this question or solution?
