How is a nuclear fission reaction controlled in a nuclear reactor?

Reactions that involve nuclei, called nuclear reactions, result in a tremendous amount of energy. Two types are fission and fusion.

The process in which each split atom gives up neutrons?

The act of an atom splitting is called nuclear fission. In nuclear fission where we see neutrons emerge with fission fragments, and we then see those neutrons initiate other fission reactions is called a nuclear fission chain reaction.

What have chain reactions got to do with nuclear fission?

The fission process in a nuclear reactor which produces the thermal energy used in the steam cycle, is called a chain reaction because nuclei of U-235 and Pu-239 fission on absorbing a neutron, and the fission causes further neutrons to be released, thus a self sustaining reaction is started which is controlled to run at a steady power level.

Why is the nuclear fission of uranium called a chain reaction?

The nuclear fission of uranium is not a chain decay. The radioactive disintegration of uranium is a decay chain.
