Electrical Engineering XYZ MCQs

The power output of a nuclear power station is proportional to:

- Square of the rate at which fission reaction occurs
- Square root of the rate at which fission reaction occurs
- The rate at which fission reaction occurs
- None of the above

Correct answer: 3. The rate at which fission reaction occurs

Explanation: Nuclear power stations generate electricity through nuclear fission reactions, where heavy atomic nuclei split into smaller fragments, releasing a large amount of energy. The rate at which these fission reactions occur directly determines the power output of the nuclear power station. More specifically, the power output is directly proportional to the rate at which fission reactions occur.
