# Chain Yield

From NucleonicaWiki

The chain yield is the number of isobars of a specific mass, produced in 100 fission reactions. In other terms, the chain yield Y(A) is equal to the sum of all stable or long-lived cumulative yields for a given mass chain. The cumulative yield of the last (stable or long-lived) chain member is generally2 identical to the chain yield. These chain yields apply to fission products after emission of prompt neutrons that takes place in a time of 10−14 s after scission.
