. A self-sustaining nuclear process, in which the bombarding particles needed to produce the fission of further material are themselves produced as the product of the initial fission, is called a _________ reaction.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To fill in the blanks.

A self-sustaining nuclear process, in which bombarding particles needed to produce the fission of further material are themselves produced as product of the initial fission, is called a....... reaction.

Concept Introduction:

The reaction consist of sequence of products which acts as reacting species further react to produce different products.

In these reaction various products produced are acting as reacting species to produce further product.

Explanation

A chain reaction is the reaction consisting of sequences in which products and by products also act as reacting agent react to give further product.

In these type of reaction bombarding particles acting as reactive products reacts to produce the further material which again reacts to produce product of the initial fission.

The nuclear chain reaction or decay of uranium-238 to lead-206 can be shown as:

92U238 α 90Th234  2β 92U234 5α82Pb
