- What is attempted here is to compute the energy absorbed in several elements from interactions with neutrons in the energy range of 0 to 14 Mev. In these calculations the results have been normalized to one neutron per square centimeter incident per gram of target material, thus making it a simpler matter to calculate energy absorbed in compounds containing these elements. In these calculations the single-collision approximation is assumed in that each neutron is considered to undergo only one collision in the sample, that scattered neutron escaping from the sample. The results are presented graphically for the elements hydrogen, carbon, nitrogen; oxygen: ·aluminum, ·silicon, germanium, tantalum, and bismuth. Plotted in these figures is the energy transferred per gram of target material per single neutron per square centimeter incident as a function of the-incident neutron energy.
