Nuclear Power Station or Nuclear Power Plant

We can generate electrical power by means of nuclear power. In nuclear power station, generates electrical power by nuclear reaction. Here, heavy radioactive elements such as Uranium (U235) or Thorium (Th232) are subjected to nuclear fission. This fission is done in a special apparatus called reactor. What is nuclear fission? In fission process, the nuclei … Read more

Nuclear Reactor

A nuclear power plant uses the energy released due to nuclear reactions. The nuclear reaction is a chain reaction. The rate of reaction increases continuously in an uncollected manner if a proper arrangement is not taken to control the reaction. In actual nuclear reaction, uranium is bombarded with slow moving neutrons. These neutrons are called … Read more
