    Electricity and energy is produced through different methods. One of these methods is through nuclear power plants. Nuclear power plant is a method to produce electricity through nuclear reaction. To understand it more deeply , we have to get a good grasp of the structure of nuclear power plant. In brief , nuclear power plant consists of different equipments and constructions used to regulate the production of energy. Radio active elements like Uranium 235 is used as a meterial to create nuclear fission. The element disintegrates by creating a vast energy. This reaction is a chain reaction. The disintegrated nucleus again undergo nuclear fission and it happens continuously . If the reaction is not regulated properly, it would leads to a catastrophic disaster. For the regulation of reaction , graphite rods are used. These graphite rods reduces the reaction . The walls of the reaction chamber is made thick of about 5 feet. Any leakage or uncertainty happened would lead to a explosion which causes its effect over generations. The nuclear waste too needs to be properly managed.
