Energy of Fission Process

Excerpt: Release of this energy in a largo scale way is a possibility because of the fact that in each fission process, which requires a neutron to produce it, two neutrons are released. Consider a very great mass of active material, so great that no neutrons are lost through the surface and assume the material so pure that no neutrons are lost in other ways than by fission. One neutron released in the ~ass would become 2 after the first fission, each of these would prod...
