How Does Nuclear Energy Work?


In a nuclear reactor uses rods of uranium are used to boil water. The steam produced from this ruses up a large chimney and drives turbines that produce the electricity. Rods of graphite are used to keep the nuclear chain reaction within the uranium rods under control and prevent meltdown.

Nuclear energy is very simple. When you take a loose neutron and you get it to collide into a uranium-235 atom, the atom will split and release energy and 3 more neutrons. Thus causing
Function Nuclear energy is created through a mechanism called a reactor. The power source is the heat produced by a controlled nuclear fission chain reaction, either of uranium or
Under nuclear fission with thermal neutrons uranium release an enormous quantity of energy (202,5 MeV per one atom of. 235. U) the obtained heat is converted in electricity.
