Chain reaction

scroll

Self-perpetuating reaction. In a fission chain reaction, a fissile nucleus absorbs a neutron, splits and simultaneously releases several neutrons (in the case of U-235 an average of 2.46). These neutrons can be absorbed in turn by other fissile nuclei, initiate fissions and release other neutrons.
