What is a scientific example of a neutron?


Wiki User

We can look at the scientific example of the nuclear reactor to see how the neutron works or what it can do. We can't see neutrons directly, of course. They're far too small. We can only look at the effects they have. Neutrons, which are spontaneously generated by fissile material, caused a chain reaction that we control. That is the essence of the operation of the nuclear reactor. There are more questions covering this subject here at WikiAnswers. Links are provided below.
