The average amount of energy released during the fission of uranium atom is:
A. 100 MeV
B. 150 MeV
C. 20 MeV
D. 200 MeV
Nuclear energy is generated by the process of nuclear fusion or nuclear fission.
Nuclear fission is a process in which nucleus of heavy elements like uranium divides into two smaller nuclei when bombarded with some neutron. During fission of uranium, 200MeV energy is released.
