Concept Introduction:

Nuclear reactor is a system known as atomic pile which initiates nuclear chain reaction. This reactor works on uranium atom and make it split and releases neutron and heat. It consists of moderator, control rod, contaminant and coolant system.

Explanation

Cooling liquid works by unblocking the blocked passages of engine and heads. Contaminant in nuclear reactor is responsible for the contamination of the system which consist of impurities such as neutron as by product and blocks the engine...
