Simulated Stimulated Fission

Unit 4: Nuclear Chemistry
Lesson 1 of 7

Objective: SWBAT explain why isotopes are characterized as stable or unstable and how uranium-235 is stimulated to undergo fission.

Big Idea: Fission is a non-spontaneous nuclear process that occurs in unstable, heavy nuclei resulting in more stable daughter atoms.
