Title: DISPERSION OF THE NEUTRON EMISSION IN U$sup 235$ FISSION

DISPERSION OF THE NEUTRON EMISSION IN U$sup 235$ FISSION Equations are developed which allow the calculation of the average number of neutrons per U{sup 235} fission from experimental measurements. Experimental methods are described, the results of which give a value of (7.8{+-}0.6){sup 1/2} neutrons per U{sup 235} thermal fission. (D.E.B.)
