Uranium-235 can be separated from U -238 by fluorinating the uranium to form UF 6 which is a gas) and then taking advantage of the different rates of effusion and diffusion for compounds containing the two isotopes.

Calculate the ratio of effusion rates for 238 UF 6 and 235 UF 6. The atomic mass of U-235 is 235.054 amu and that of U-238 is 238.051 amu.
