User: Suppose 3 neutrons are released by an atom in the first stage of a fission chain reaction. Each of these neutrons has enough energy to cause another fission reaction in another nucleus of the material. If all the neutrons cause other nuclei to fission, how many atoms will have undergone fission after 2 more stages of the chain reaction? A. 6 B. 12 C. 9 D. 27

Weegy: 27 atoms will have undergone fission after 2 more stages of the chain reaction.

User: Figure 10-1 Study Figure 10-1. The strong nuclear force felt by a single proton in a large nucleus A. is much greater than that felt by a single proton in a small nucleus. B. is much less than that felt by a single proton in a small nucleus. C. is about the same as that felt by a single proton in a small nucleus. D. is about the same as the electric force felt by a single proton in a small nucleus.

Weegy: In a large nucleus a proton will be affected by many more electric forces than strong nuclear forces. These smaller electric forces will contribute to the instability of the nucleus.
