How is energy produced in nuclear power plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    Nuclear Power Plants create energy using something called Nuclear fission. In this process, special isotopes with large nuclei, like Uranium, the primary fuel source of nuclear fission, are bombarded with neutrons. This causes the atom to split apart into two new atoms, which releases energy. This produces far less energy then nuclear fusion, in which one atom is not split into two, but two are joined as one. Fusion creates far more energy and many nuclear researchers believe it could be the fuel of the future.
