Xkcd depleted Uranium

Not sure why the page says depleted Uranium. I think they were natural uranium, which is radioactive. Rocbolt's reference supports this Arnold Chiari II 21:26, 16 January 2015 (UTC) Depleted uranium is nearly pure U-238, which is radioactive, but has a half-life 6X longer than U-235

  1. The A-10 Warthog is built around a 30 mm cannon that fires depleted uranium rounds, 65 of them per second. I heard from someone who worked on the flight controls a long time ago, that when the cannon is fired it provides more thrust than the engines
  2. utes. Uranium-234 is also an alpha emitter, meaning it decays into Thorium-230 and helium. Thorium-230 decays into helium and Radon-226, which has a half life of around one and a half thousand years. (And for those who are picky and obsessive like me, yes, there would be small quantities of other elements produced by things like spontaneous fission and cluster decay, but I'm keeping.
  3. In a complete nuclear cycle breeders take uranium and turn it in to power, plutonium and fissile waste. Then a burner reactor takes the fissile waste and converts it to power and depleted waste
  4. One formulation has a composition of 99.25% by mass of depleted uranium and 0.75% by mass of titanium, but there is a debate regarding the isotopic composition or the uranium that is used because of the findings of non depleted uranium in battlefields. Please tell me where does that violate ANY Wikipedia policy
  5. The specifics of the situation I'm thinking of are a slug the size/shape of the Chrysler building made out of depleted uranium and titanium traveling at .6c on an orbit tangent to Earth's but about 30-45 degrees inclined from Earth's orbital plane, but I'm interested in similar scenarios just as well. hard-science modern-age.

  6. g my Geiger counter is reasonably accurate (last calibrated in 84 I believe, yes it is a bit out of date), this puts of at most around 4 milliroentgen per hour peak (when the meter is right against the thickest quantity of the mantle)
  7. From the book What If? of XKCD when talking about super strong winds: The flying debris would pulverize anything that wasn't nuclear-hardened. What does nuclear-hardened mean? The closest result from Google for this term is Radiation hardening. But radiation hardening simply means making a device withstand-able in high radiation environment. The context doesn't mention anything about radiation, or radiation wind (if it even exists), just air wind

Depleted uranium is a mixture of the same three uranium isotopes, except that it has very little 234 U and 235 U. It is less radioactive than natural uranium. Enriched uranium is more radioactive than natural uranium. The less radioactive and non-fissile uranium-238 constitutes the main component of depleted uranium. (wikipedia.org depleted uranium is favored for the penetrator because it is self-sharpening and pyrophoric. On impact with a hard target, such as an armoured vehicle, the nose of the rod fractures in such a way that it remains sharp. The impact and subsequent release of heat energy causes it to disintegrate to dust and burn when it reaches air because of its pyrophoric properties (compare to ferrocerium.

  3. New data from EU satellites shows that 2020 is in a statistical dead heat with 2016 as the world's warmest year, reports the BBC (in an article shared by long-time Slashdot reader AmiMoJo): The Copernicus Climate Change Service says that last year was around 1.25C above the long-term average.

  4. Uranium metal can be up 28% beta particle, which can be blocked by sandbags or a thick brick wall. Depleted uranium contains almost no beta particle radiation. Uranium ore lacks the purity of uranium metal and usually more beta particles than depleted unranium but not much more though it's purity and composition are naturally variant

  6. - Uranium ammo (machine gun ammo and tank shells) made from depleted uranium pellets. The machine gun ammo is strong enough to stay relevant at all stages of the game. - Reactor balance is different (or not broken). A fully maxed out reactor can produce a consistent 10MW. - Uranium pellets are more plentiful
  7. Depleted uranium (DU) is uranium primarily composed of the isotope uranium-238 (U-238). Natural uranium is about 99.27 percent U-238, 0.72 percent U-235, and 0.0055 percent U-234. U-235 is used for fission in nuclear reactors and nuclear weapons. Uranium is enriched in U-235 by separating the isotopes by mass. The byproduct of enrichment, called depleted uranium or DU, contains less than one.

MSR can use LWR waste as fuel; some MSR configurations can even use the 215,000kg depleted uranium left over from making enriched uranium. No reprocessing needed, put the uranium, plutonium and. There was a long pause before the first beam of depleted uranium hit the rock beneath them. Hermione could feel the impact in her inner ear as the roar of sound and air and dust blasted into the five mounted witches and wizard. They were quite high up but then, it was quite an impact.

Only solution here is either carbide or depleted uranium tipped bullets. Posted: 1/17/2016 11:49:24 AM EDT Heating while travelling through the air is factor, but the fact you just applied considerable amount of heat to the tail of the projo also plays into it Thorium is nowhere near as dangerous as uranium anyway - that's why the US chose not to continue research into the construction of thorium-based nuclear reactors, way back in the 1960s. They simply couldn't be used to produce the materials required to manufacture nuclear weapons, so the use of thorium was discarded. The pity is that thorium reactors (unlike uranium based ones) CANNOT blow up. XKCD: rarely funny, sometimes hilarious Remarkably close to the beliefs of actual 9/11 deniers, many of whom admit that the United States really does have enemies abroad, but still insist that George Bush had to concoct the most elaborate hoax in history in order to invade a couple of third-world countries, such as the United States invades every couple of years or so.

Depleted Uranium - Far Worse Than 9/11. In 1979, depleted uranium (DU) particles escaped from the National Lead Industries factory near Albany, N.Y. ,which was manufacturing DU weapons for the U.S military. The particles traveled 26 miles and were discovered in a laboratory filter by Dr. Leonard Dietz, a nuclear physicist. This discovery led to a shut down of the factory in 1980, for.

Of course, officials said, they would certainly have other problems if their tank o

For references XKCD's radiation chart is a really good reference that has stood up to my random verification tests. For some radioactive materials the radiation risk is so minimal that the stuff will cause more trouble from a heavy metal poisoning point of view than from a radiation point of view. One example is depleted uranium, that stuff is almost pure 238U whose halflife is so long (1/3. Stuff like loiter times to find the tank, risk to pilots. I bet pilots are the most expensive component in the aircraft. Wikipedia says a helfire is $68,000 usd. Say you fit 8 on an aricraft, how many depleted uranium rounds must you have to take out 8 targets (and account for misses).

As of last night I've accumulated around 10 refined uranium, and about 10x that in depleted variety. Questions to ya'all: 1) At what point should I consider using this uranium for power? (How much should I have to start) 2) Should I look into a Breeder reactor first since I'll have so much of the depleted uranium initially an udge and a wink Just remember that the takeaway lesson from The Faultless Painter is that perfection isn't, and love is separate from achievement One more thing: Depleted Uranium.

Johnson can be found scouring the beaches of Rincón, where a nuclear power plant operated until the 1970s, or collecting soil samples in Vieques, where depleted uranium residue remained for years following an artillery firing range run by the U.S. Navy.

But, as the article I linked to states, this accusation has no evidence whatsoever to back it. DU shells are fairly radioactive but they are not nearly dangerous enough to cause the sort of bizarre injuries reported. I consider it far more likely that they have been using phosphorous muntiions. Actually, It would exploded, not in a thermal nuclear detonation but in depleted uranium's own special way. wikipedia Depleted uranium is favored for the penetrator because it is self-sharpening[34] and flammable.[29] On impact with a hard target, such as an armored vehicle, the nose of the rod fractures in such a way that it remains sharp.[34] The impact and subsequent release of heat.
