Fig.8.1 Total cross-section s tot and fission cross-section s f
                                                              235
         as a function of energy for neutrons incident on        U
                                                                         Fig.8.4 Sketch of the elements of the core of a reactor
Fig.8.2 Total cross-section   s tot   and fission cross-section s f
                                                              238
         as a function of energy for neutrons incident on        U
Fig.8.5 The right-hand curve is proportional to the Gamow factor and the left-hand
   curve is the exponential of the Maxwell distribution. The dotted curve is the
         combined effect and is proportional to the probability of fusion.
