Mistake in the wiki page.

Post by SiO2 »

>Tutorial:Nuclear power
>>Enrichment
One un-moduled Centrifuge enriching uranium is sufficient to supply 33.33 reactors with fuel,
Should be 3.33 reactors per un-moduled Centrifuge.

PS I am sorry for bringing up it here, but I will request the wiki account only if there will be significantly more than one commit to contribute.

Are you accounting for the fact that you get 10 fuel cells from 1 Uranium-235?

To cite the calculation from an earlier version:
200(one uranium fuel cell processing time in nuclear reactor)/50sec(Kovarex enrichment process)*0.75(Centrifuge crafting speed)*10(Uranium fuel cells per 1 U-235)=30

Nowadays it's 200/60*1*10 = 33.33, which corresponds to the number on the wiki page. In words: One cell is produced every 6 seconds (10 every 60s) and it lasts 200 seconds per reactor, 200/6 = 33.33.

Oh, the fuel cells produced in 10-packs! That changes everything.
