Answer :

271)The function of moderator is nuclear reactor is
to increase the number fissionable nuclei to moderate the number of secondary neutrons
to slow down the secondary neutrons to control the fission reaction
Answer :

272)A breeder reactor is that which
does not require fissionable material at all uses only heavy water
produces more fissionable material than it burns None of these
Answer :

273)The enormous energy released in an atomic explosion is due to the
conversion of chemical energy into heat energy conversion of mass into energy
conversion of mechanical energy into nuclear energy conversion of neutrons into protons
Answer :
