What is needed for nuclear energy?
Nuclear power comes from nuclear fission
Nuclear power plants heat water to produce steam. The steam is used to spin large turbines that generate electricity. Nuclear power plants use heat produced during nuclear fission to heat water. In nuclear fission, atoms are split apart to form smaller atoms, releasing energy.
What are three main parts of a nuclear reactor explain in short functions of each?
⦁ The Core: It contains all the fuel and generates the heat required for energy production. ⦁ The Containment: The enveloping structure that separated the nuclear reactor from the surrounding environment.
which is the required answer. Hence 9 x 10¹⁰ J of energy is liberated when 1 mg of uranium-235 is completely destroyed in an atomic bomb.
