depleted uranium
Uranium that contains a reduced (depleted) amount of the fissile isotope U-235 compared to natural uranium; it is used in applications where radioactivity in not needed
depleted-uranium
Attributive form of depleted uranium, noun

depleted-uranium reserves.

depleted uranium
It is what is left over when most of the highly radioactive types (isotopes) of uranium are removed for use as nuclear fuel or nuclear weapons The depleted uranium used in armor-piercing munitions and in enhanced armor protection for some Abrams tanks is also used in civilian industry, primarily for stabilizers in airplanes and boats
depleted uranium
Uranium having a percentage of 235U smaller than the 0 7 percent found in natural uranium It is obtained as a by-product from uranium isotope separation (see Enrichment)
depleted uranium
Uranium having a smaller percentage of uranium-235 than the 0 7 percent found in natural uranium It is a by-product of the uranium enrichment process, during which uranium-235 is culled from one batch of uranium, thereby depleting it, and then added to another batch to increase its concentrations of uranium-235
depleted uranium
Uranium containing a lesser mass percentage of uranium-235 than in natural uranium [2]
depleted uranium
Uranium in which the content of the fissile isotope uranium-235 is less than the 0 7 % normally found in nature Typical of taillings from enrichment processes
depleted uranium
A by-product of uranium enrichment, the most common chemical form of which is depleted uranium hexafluoride (DUF6) Natural uranium is composed of three isotopes: uranium-238 (99 284 percent); uranium-235 (0 711 percent); and uranium-234 (0 005 percent), all of which are radioactive The purpose of uranium enrichment is to concentrate uranium-235, the fissile isotope, in one stream The other stream which is low in uranium-235, is called "depleted uranium," which contains about 0 2 to 0 3 percent uranium-235
depleted uranium
Uranium containing less than 0 71 percent uranium 235 Produced as a by-product of the uranium enrichment process
depleted uranium
Depleted uranium is a type of uranium that is used in some bombs
depleted uranium
Uranium having less than the natural 0 7% U-235 As a by-product of enrichment in the fuel cycle it generally has 0 25-0 30% U-235, the rest being U-238 Can be blended with highly-enriched uranium (eg from weapons) to make reactor fuel
depleted uranium
Uranium having a percentage of uranium-235 smaller than the 0 7 percent found in natural uranium It is obtained from spent (used) fuel elements or as byproduct tails, or residues, from uranium isotope separation
