Understanding how nuclear fission produces such vast quantities of energy starts with unimaginably tiny sub-atomic particles. This clip details how fission occurs in radioactive nuclei to release energy. It also explores why the amount of energy generated when nuclei split is so great, using Einstein’s equation: E = mc2. Aimed at middle to senior secondary students of science/physics, this resource will assist in gaining a clear understanding of nuclear fission.
