Sample Text:
~1930, Fermi bombarded neutrons at various nuclei. He noticed that when a larger element was bombarded with neutrons, heavier isotopes at undergo beta decay were created. Thus he predicted that neutron bombardment of uranium would lead to the formation of transuranic elements. U-238 + n → U-239 → Np-239 + e. Np-239 → 239-Pu + e. However, when he fired neutrons at uranium later on, other unexpected elements were produced. He did not understand his results, he thought he had produced element number 93 and did not realise nuclear fission has occurred. (the uranium nuclei was split). Describe how Fermi set up his atomic pile and demonstrated controlled nuclear fission for the first time. V Fermi built the first nuclear...
