Physics Ques.

posted by .

In nuclear reactors, subatomic particles called neutrons are slowed down by allowing them to collide with the atoms of a moderator material, such as carbon atoms, which are 12 times as massive as neutrons. If the neutron has an initial speed of 1.0×107 m/s, what will be its speed after collision?

    A nuclear reactor contains nuclei that fission when bombarded by slow neutrons. The fission reaction produces fast neutrons which need to be moderated (i.e. slowed down) in collisions before they can cause further fissions. In this …

    How does nuclear fission create energy? Nuclear energy is produced through the splitting, or fission, of a uranium atom in the core of a nuclear reactor. When hit by a neutron, the atom divides and releases two other neutrons, as well
