Fission - Questions IV.2.1

Include units when entering answers. Ex: for Watts use W or meters per second use m/s. If you enter in a decimal place a '0' to the left of the decimal: Ex: '0.98', not '.98'. If you enter a number written in scientific notation such as 5.2 x 1013 J - enter in the blank 5.2 x 10 E 13 J - it does not matter if you capitolize the letters or put spaces in the answers. All answers should be expressed with one decimal.
