the amount of fissile material that is needed to support a self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction
A quantity or amount required to trigger a phenomenon
(social dynamics) A sufficient number of adopters of an innovation in a social system so that the rate of adoption becomes self-sustaining and creates further growth
n In physics, the minimum amount of fissionable material required to sustain a chain reaction Of a software product, describes a condition of the software such that fixing one bug introduces one plus {epsilon} bugs When software achieves critical mass, it can only be discarded and rewritten
The minimum mass of fissionable material in a nuclear reactor or nuclear bomb that will sustain a chain reaction
In physics, the critical mass of a substance is the minimum amount of it that is needed for a nuclear chain reaction
The minimum amount of fissionable material (such as uranium 235) of a given shape required to maintain a chain reaction needed for a nuclear fission explosion For example, a golf ball-size piece of uranium 235 cannot sustain a chain reaction, so it cannot be made into a nuclear weapon The piece of uranium 235 the size of a baseball is large enough to sustain a chain reaction, so it could explode if set off
the minimum mass of fissionable material that will support a sustaining chain reaction
the minimum mass of fissionable material that can sustain a chain reaction
The amount of a particular fissionable material required to make a fission reaction self-sustaining
The amount of nuclear fuel in the proper shape necessary to sustain a chain reaction If too little fuel is present, or the mass in not in the proper shape, too many neutrons will stray and the reaction will die out
mass of nuclear fuel necessary necessary for a chain reaction to occur (Physics)
The amount of fissionable material (uranium 235 or plutonium 239) sufficient to sustain a nuclear chain reaction
A critical mass of something is an amount of it that makes it possible for something to happen or continue. Only in this way can the critical mass of participation be reached. Minimum amount of a given fissionable material necessary to achieve a self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction under specified conditions. Critical mass depends on several factors, including the kind of fissionable material used, its concentration and purity, and the composition and geometry of the surrounding reaction system
the minimum mass of fissionable material that can sustain a chain reaction the minimum amount (of something) required to start or maintain a venture; "the battle for the computer market has now reached critical mass"; "there is now a critical mass of successful women to take the lead"; "they sold the business because it lacked critical mass
the minimum size that a market or industry is considered to need to operate at in order to be efficient
the mass of fissionable material required to produce a self-sustaining chain reaction
the minimum size of firm thought necessary to compete effectively, e g to finance R & D
The minimum amount of concentrated fissionable material required to sustain a chain reaction
The minimum mass of a fissionable material that will just maintain a fission chain reaction under precisely specified conditions, such as the nature of the material and its purity, the nature and thickness of the tamper (or neutron reflector), the density (or compression), and the physical shape (or geometry) For an explosion to occur, the system must be supercritical (i e , the mass of material must exceed the critical mass under the existing conditions) See Supercritical
The minimum amount of fuel needed in the core of a nuclear reactor in order to start a self-sustaining chain reaction When a reactor starts up it is said to "go critical"
Quantity of nuclei required to sustain a nuclear fission chain reaction
The condition when enough educators in an organization are effectively using strategies such as cooperative learning, process writing, interdisciplinary instruction, or performance-based learning and assessment so that these new strategies have a high probability of becoming a permanent part of the culture of that organization (school or school district)
The smallest mass of fissile material that will support a self-sustaining chain reaction under specified conditions
Spontaneous fission in uranium produces neutrons that induce fission of 235U, which releases neutrons that can produce a chain reaction The critical mass is the amount of fissable material necessary for this chain reaction to sustain itself
In this document critical mass is used to describe the grouping together of visitor facilities to achieve a minimum desired level of activity It is the combination of visitor experience necessary to create a major attraction that provides high-quality interpretive services to the visitor
The minimum mass required to sustain a chain reaction The exact mass varies with many factors such as the particular isotope present, its concentration and chemical form, the geometric arrangement of the material, and its density
The amount of a fissionable material , at a given density and mixed in a specified way with other material, where on average one neutron caused by a fission reaction will go on to cause another fission
The minimum amount concentrated fissionable material required to sustain a chain reaction The exact mass of fissionable material needed to sustain a chain reaction varies according to the concentration (purity) and chemical form of the material, the particular fissionable isotope present, its geometrical properties, and its density When pure fissionable materials are compressed by high explosives in implosion-type atomic weapons, the critical mass needed for a nuclear explosion is reduced
the minimum amount (of something) required to start or maintain a venture; "the battle for the computer market has now reached critical mass"; "there is now a critical mass of successful women to take the lead"; "they sold the business because it lacked critical mass"
The capacity to offer certain medical specialties or sub-specialties is dependent on having a large enough population in order to have a large enough number of patients to maintain competencies
