Reaction Rate and Energy (thermal) Generated

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A PWR supplied with 100Tonnes of 2.5% U-235 is to be energised. With Φ=1.5×1013 (neutrons/[itex]cm^{2}[/itex].s) we can achieve up to 4years without refueling.

2. Relevant equations

Find the thermal power output of the reactor at the beginning of the operation.

3. The attempt at a solution

No reaction rate from formula paper allows to follow through the question as all of them require Volume of the reactor.
