# The Energy Produced by Converting 1 Gram Mass of a Nuclear Fuel into Energy Completely Is: (A) 9 × 1016 J (B) 9 × 1014 J (C) 9 × 1015 J (D) 9 × 1013 J - Science

The energy produced by converting 1 gram mass of a nuclear fuel into energy completely is:

(a) 9 × 1016 J
(b) 9 × 1014 J
(c) 9 × 1015 J
(d) 9 × 1013 J

#### Solution

(d) 9 × 1013 J

The energy produced by converting 1 gram (1/1000 kg) mass of a nuclear fuel is given by Einstein's equation as
E=mc^2

(1/1000)xx(3xx10^8)^2=9xx10^13j

Is there an error in this question or solution?
