# Where does nuclear fission occur?

Jan 8, 2018

A lot of places.

#### Explanation:

Nuclear fission can happen in a nuclear reaction.

An example would be in nuclear power plants, where uranium is decayed into other substances.

An example equation would be as follows

""_0^1n+_92^235U->_36^92Kr+_56^141Ba+3_0^1n

In this example, a neutron reacts with uranium-235 to give krypton-92, barium-141, and 3 neutrons.
