Fission and Fusion Fission is a nuclear reaction in which an atomic nucleus splits, or fissions, into fragments, usually two fragments of comparable mass, with the release of large amounts of energy in the form of heat and radiation. Energy can also be produced by combining light nuclei in a process is called nuclear fusion
Fission Nuclear Fission Animation, A stable atom of Uranium-235 becomes an unstable (radioactive) atom of Uranium-236 when it absorbs a neutron. The nucleus of an unstable U-236 atom breaks apart spontaneously, releasing a large amount of energy, nuclei of two lighter elements, and three neutrons
Fission Nuclear Fission Animation. In nuclear fission, a heavy atomic nucleus, such as that of uranium or plutonium, will break up into two lighter nuclei. In the fission process, a large quantity of energy is released, radioactive products are formed, and several neutrons are emitted
Fission process animation Fission, i.e. splitting of nuclei of heavy isotopes like 235U (or 239Pu) generates energy in a nuclear rector
Fusion Nuclear Fusion Animation, Concept simulation reenacts the fusion of deuterium and tritium inside of a tokamak reactor
Fusion Nuclear Fusion Animation, down?
Fusion Fusion is a nuclear process in which two light atoms fuse together to make a larger one. During this process, a lot of energy is released, which comes from the strong forces acting in the nucleus. In the animation, a deuterium nucleus (an isotope of hydrogen), fuses together with a tritium nucleus (another isotope of hydrogen) to form a helium nucleus, and a single neutron, swf file

Nuclear Fission Nuclear Fission animation
Nuclear Fission During fission the uranium atom splits into two roughly equal parts, known as 'fission products'. Spare neutrons are also released, along with heat from the energy holding the atom together

Nuclear power plant generation Now that energy has been released through nuclear fission, it needs to be captured somehow. All that energy within the reactor is captured by water pipes surrounding the reactor. The water passes through the heat exchanger, which will transfer heat from the reactor water to fresh water. The fresh water will turn into steam, which will drive a turbine connected to a generator to create electricity

Pressurized Water Reactor
Pressurized Water Reactor Pictorial explanation of power transfer in a pressurized water reactor. Primary coolant is in orange and the secondary coolant (steam and later feedwater) is in blue
Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) Pressurized Water Reactor animation, PWRs keep water under pressure so that it heats, but does not boil. Water from the reactor and the water in the steam generator that is turned into steam never mix. In this way, most of the radioactivity stays in the reactor area
