  • Nuclear reactor

    A nuclear reactor, formerly known as an atomic pile, is a device used to initiate and control a self-sustained nuclear chain reactionThe actual operation of a nuclear reactor is started by pulling out the control rods of a specially designed reactor, so that they do not obsorb many neutronsNuclear reactors are used at nuclear power plants for electricity generation and in nuclear marine ....
