Question

How does inserting the control rods in the graphite core affect the fission in the reactor ? Explain your answer.


Solution

On inserting the control rods in the graphite core, the rods start absorbing the excess neutrons and maintain the rate of reaction as per requirement. The rods can be raised or lowered in the reactor from outside. The part which is inside the reactor absorbs neutrons.
