Textbook Problem

The cure of a nuclear reactor generates a large amount of thermal energy from the decay of fission products, even when the power-producing fission chain reaction is turned off. Would this residual heat be greatest after the reactor has run for a long time or short time? What if the reactor has been shut down for months?

To determine

Whether the residual heat be greatest after the reactor has run for a long time or short time. Also state the condition that will happen if the reactor has been shut down for months.

Explanation

Introduction:

Nuclear fission is the reaction when heavy molecules break into small pieces in this neutron is released which make the reaction uncontrolled . Fission reaction have many by product during the reaction.

Nuclear fusion reaction has a neutron as by product which is capable to react the radioactive element further and then more by product of the reaction forms...
