I want some one can answer these questions!!I already wrote down my answers in paper but I want to be perfect those answers, it's important for me. Thank you.Ch. 14 Data Analysis – Uranium
Uranium (U), is a mineral resource obtained from Uranium ore deposits in various types of
rocks at diFerent concentraTons.
It is used as a fuel in the reactors of nuclear power plants.
high-grade ore has 2% U and a low-grade ore has 0.1% U.
±he esTmated worldwide
recoverable resources of Uranium weigh 4,743,000 metric tons.
±he United States has about
7% of the world’s Uranium resources, which amounts to about 342,000 metric tons.
Show your work!
1. Given that current worldwide usage of Uranium is about 66,500 U/year, how long will
the world’s present recoverable resources last?
Note: 1 metric ton = 1,000kg = 1.1 tons
2. Assume U.S. usage is about 25% of world usage.
If the U.S. were to rely just only on its
domesTc Uranium resources, how long would they last, assuming a 100% recovery rate
(meaning that 100% of the resource can be used)?
3. Assume that most U.S. ore bodies contain high-grade ore (2% U) and that the recovery
rates of Uranium from the ore (accounTng for losses in mining, extracTon, and re²ning)
How many metric tons of ore will have to be mined to meet U.S. needs?
