Lesson: Nuclear Energy Chemistry
In this lesson, we will learn how to explain how energy is produced by nuclear fusion and fission in the context of nuclear power plants.
In solar fusion reactions, how many hydrogen nuclei must fuse to create one helium nucleus and two positrons?
What is the name of the rods used to absorb neutrons and slow down the reaction in a nuclear reactor?
In the following example of nuclear fission, what else is produced but is not shown in the chemical equation?
