Nuclear fission processes can provide useful energy but can also be dangerous. What if Congress decided to outlaw all processes that involve fission? How would that change our society?

Interpretation Introduction


Interpret the affect on society for the outlaw of fission reaction in nuclear processes.

Concept Introduction:

The decaying of an atom takes place by three type of decay such as alpha decay, beta decay, gama decay.

In alpha decay, an alpha particle with mass 4m and electron 2e removed from nuclide while in beta decay two type of decay are possible beta (+) and beta (-). In gamma decay, nuclide will remain same to the original one.


Nuclear fission reaction is the breaking of atom with heavy masses to nuclide with lower mass along with the emition of small particle may be alpha, beta or gamma particle. These particle may results in creation of radiation which affects the person present in the surrounding environment...
