Abstract A study of the mass distribution of fission fragments provides a better understanding of the fission process for heavy nuclei. In addition, a knowledge of the relative yield of various fragments is necessary in some practical uses of radioactive isotopes. In this paper the method and results of measurements of the relative production of several fragments, formed in the fission of U235, U238 and Pu239 by neutrons with energy of 14.6 Mev, are given. By experimental and “reflected” points, curves are obtained for the distribution of fragments by masses. Some special features of this distribution are interpreted.
