Animated gif showing fission of U-235 by Stephan-Xp
We’ve discussed nuclear fission in class this week. This is the process where an unstable nucleus splits into 2 or more smaller nuclei. The new atoms produced are called daughter products of the fission process. The University of California has a good animation of the fission process with commentary. I have also included a link below to a nice animation from atomicarchive.com.
