Today we will understand why some elements undergo nuclear fission reaction while other undergo fusion reaction to form heavy element. It has to do with a curve in nuclear physics we call the binding energy curve. Where the Binding energy per Nucleon is plotted versus the Nucleon number.
Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) offer a promising avenue for India’s transition to cleaner energy sources and its pursuit of net-zero emissions. However, navigating the legal and regulatory landscape, enhancing safety standards, addressing public concerns, and ensuring international cooperation remain vital steps in realizing the potential benefits of SMRs in India’s energy sector.
