(12ai) Decay constant is defined as the instantaneous rate of decay per
unit atom of a substance.
Halflife ,T=0.693/decay contant. Hence, decay constant,llamda =0.693/T ;
=0.693/3days; =0.182day-1 i.e per day.
(12bi) the moderator of a nuclear fission reactor is made up of graphite.
Its function is that slow down the movement of a neutron,so that the
chain reaction will not dry out.
(12bii) the control rods is made of Boron steel.its function is to ensure
movement of the floor,so that it can shut off the reactor automatically in
case of electrical failure
