Question

Which product of the nuclear fission of uranium-235 is utilised to cause further fission of its nuclei?


Solution

Neutrons

Uranium-235 undergoes fission when struck by fission neutrons, and in turn, emits neutrons when it breaks apart. The emitted neutrons further drive the fission process and make it self-sustaining.
