Hi!

Can anyone tell me which energy transformations take place in a nuclear power station?

I have been looking all over the internet but I cant find anything

Thanks!

Nuclear energy of fission is turned to thermal energy of water, which turns into steam and transfering into mechanical energy of a turbine of a generator which turns this mechanical energy to electircal energy. As I remember this is all.

Oh, that thing. Yea that's it unless you want to add that the turbine spins which contains a magnetic inside causing the electrical energy to be formed through magnetic induction of w/e, some HL topic.

No website said that nuclear reactors are fission o.0

It works the same as a typical combustion power plant, however, instead of burning fossil fuels to heat the water, nuclear reactions heat the water.

I think it was more the fact the none said that energy is transformed from chemical potential -> heat -> mechanical -> electrical
