Nah, fission isn't that hard. Anything that produces neutrons will likely do some transmuting of elements, put that next to some element that's fissile (even just a chunk of natural uranium rock would do, since it would have some fissile elements in it), and you can get some fission out of it, but probably not a lot of it. You only have to do things with enrichment and such if you want a self-sustaining reaction, like you'd use for a power plant or such.
O.K.; O.K. What you wrote make sense. But; In a kitchen? How was he measuring? How does a normal, run of the mill, Swede measure how much of each element is in What state?
Heat! He could have used a thermometer.?. What kind of a thermometer would work for that? Oh, Good Grief. Who wants to do nuclear chemistry? Why?
What a guy. I wonder. I, just, wonder; If, he asked nice and promised to keep his hands behind his back; Would the reasonable people of his land allow him to see how the Big Boys
He might have to take a class or two, if, he is still interested, after, he sees a real lab. Huh?http://www.iaea.org/newscenter/news/201 ... lists.html
Eww. How fun would that be? None. Where are the labs? No one gets to go into real labs? Where are the labs?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_N ... Laboratory
Sorry, to bother you with another long post. It seems that only
people that read in that language are able to read about the Nuclear Labs in Sweden.
I sure hope that they let the Kitchen Physicist talk to other Physicists. It must be lonely for him. He seems to want to know stuff. He did not seem to be attempting unknown Science. We was well within the scope of the 'known'.
Known by Somebody; Not me.
I prefer Biology in the kitchen. I was once stung by a wasp that had been dead for two weeks. Think about that in the kitchen, for a while. Yes. My kitchen was also my lab.
(Spoiler) Contractile muscle fibers; stinger of wasp and bees. Also, Barbed. The stinger extends as the wasp dries out. So; Touching it was more painful than I had expected. I wonder; How long does the venom remain potent? Two weeks I am sure of.
My 'job' was kitchen work. My interest was Science. Thank God, I developed an interest in things that I could see and measure with the naked eye.
I had a guest house for a while. I liked it. I learned a lot. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidden_variable_theory
I Love the internet. It knows so much. Einstein was wrong. I think God does play dice. Why not? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positivism
Good Grief. I should not be typing into an open Forum. It is like speaking in Public.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
