What is nuclear power fission?

2 Answers

In nuclear fission, atoms are split apart, releasing energy. All nuclear power plants use nuclear fission, and most of these plants use uranium atoms. During nuclear fission, a neutron collides with a uranium atom and splits it, releasing a large amount of energy in the form of heat and radiation.
