The different source I’ve read about nuclear energy indicates that it’s really expensive. It also explains that the energy obtained from a nuclear charge has a low carbon emission which is what we need for our environment at these hectic time. In definition a nuclear energy is the energy released when the nucleus of an atom is broken in the process of nuclear fission. These nuclear fission is controlled by a series of machine called nuclear reactor power plant. The fuel used in the reactor is pellets of the element uranium. The uranium in the reactor is forced to break apart on the process releasing the fission product. The fission starts the chain reaction which creates heat. The heat then warms up the cooling agent, since it’s an exothermic reaction it releases steam. Thus these released steam is what turns the turbine or drives the generator that creates electricity(nuclear energy).
