How energy is generated in Nuclear power plant?
In Nuclear power plant energy is released by nuclear fission. Nuclear fission is the process in which heavy nucleus such as 233U92, 235U92,and 239Pu94 when bombarded by certain particles ( protons, neutrons, X-rays), the heavy nucleus will split into two or more smaller nuclei, ejection of two or more neutrons and liberation of vast amount of energy. Therefore this split of heavy nucleus into two or more smaller nuclei is called fission process.
