How Is Nuclear Energy Obtained?

Answer

The energy that is produced by a nuclear power plant comes by way of steam. The heat that is produced from enriched uranium heats water that created steam. That steam turns the blades of a generator that when in motion creates power. The steam is then condensed, cooled, and then used again to make more steam.
