Which weapons material is easier to handle and to create a weapon or improvised nuclear device (IND)?
List the effects from a nuclear weapon (NW) blast, and identify them in terms of energy release from the device. Which have short-term and which have long-term effects?
A 1-megaton device explodes at a height of 5000 feet. The equivalent burst height for a 1 kT (kiloton) device is 500 feet, and its equivalent time of arrival is 4 seconds. What would be the time of arrival of the blast wave from the 1 MT (megaton) devices at a distance of 10 miles from ground zero?
The Acheson-Lilienthal report and the Baruch Plan have what element in common?
Was the nuclear weapon (NW) proliferation threat around the time of Atoms for Peace based on a national or subnational effort?
Match the elements of the NPT to the keywords in the right hand column.
List three levels covered by nuclear safeguards, and indicate the entity responsible for their enforcement.
Which of the following countries are under International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards: Russia, Chile, Japan, Australia, United States, Egypt, Iran, and India?
List the two main objectives of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards.
List three agreements included in the Information Circular (INCIRC/under 153).
List three measures granted to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) under the Additional Protocol (AP).
List three activities by a state under the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Additional Protocol (AP) that could put the state into noncompliance.
List the six key elements of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguard approaches.
True or false. U233 is defined as an indirect-use material by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
List the significant quantity (SQ) amounts for the following:
HEU. U233, Th, depleted U, Pu239
List the critical mass and critical mass reflected by depleted uranium for U233, Pu239, and HEU.
Calculate the expected neutron flux from 1 kg of discharged for light water reactor (LWR) fuel (30,000 MWd/t burnup). What is the main neutron contributor? Could Pu239 be detected by measuring neutrons alone?
Nuclear material accountancy should satisfy what requirement regarding MUF (Material Unaccounted For)?
Match IAEA assumptions of conversion time with the materials below:
Provide International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) detection timeliness goals for:
Unirradiated direct-use material
Irradiated direct-use material
Provide four scenarios for cheating International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) safeguards.
List the elements that go into determination of MUF.
List three general categories of nondestructive assay (NDA) measurements. NDA is a measurement of the nuclear material content.
Suppose a nuclear plant were built above ground, but at reduced cost, by using inferior materials and shoddy construction. Would that be a violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty?
Suppose a nuclear plant were built underground, completely hidden from view. Would that be a violation of the Non-Proliferation Treaty?
