Interpretation: A thin shell of copper is placed on a sphere of highly enriched uranium-235 and huge burst of radiation was raised. The reason should be explained.
- The process of splitting of a large nucleus into two smaller nuclei and one or more neutrons is called nuclear fission.
- Nuclear fusion is the reaction between two or more nuclei and which comes close enough to form one or more different atomic nuclei and subatomic particle.
- Nuclear chain reaction: A self-sustaining sequences nuclear fission reaction. The neutrons generated during the initial stage of fission are induced to takes place another fission reaction. In less than a second, the reaction becomes uncontrollable.
To explain: The reason for the huge burst of radiation
