In one of the damaged cores at the Fukushima nuclear power
plant, it was estimated that approximately 25,000 kg of zirconium metal
reacted with the cooling water to form hydrogen gas. This gas was then vented

of the cladding exceeded 1200°C when this reaction occurred, approximately how
many joules of thermal energy were generated by this chemical reaction?
