Chemical Reaction Of Nuclear
The nucleus of the U-235 atom comprises 92 protons and 143 neutrons 92 + 143 = 235. Atom captures a moving neutron then splits in to fissions. A large amount of heat is created by a small amount of uranium. Heat was required to produce steam to drive turbines and generators and that is why uranium was used.

Another interesting fact, is that the largest nuclear reactor is the Sun! Did you know that its scientifically proven that throughout your lifetime around your devices, theres as much radiation there would be if you were to be near a nuclear plant?! Growing countries, such as China and India, are still pursuing nuclear power. Another interesting fact, would be it can cost over 6 billion dollars to build one new reactor for a plant.
