Nuclear Reactor is an important topic of IIT JEE syllabus. The topic is quite simple and easily fetches questions in the JEE. With a bit of hard work it becomes easy to master this topic and in fact, it is vital to have a good hold on it to remain competitive in the IIT JEE.

The questions. In the early years of the Nuclear News capacity factors survey, any factor over 70 was deemed excellent; any factor under 50 was considered poor. By that standard, all but two operating U.S. power reactors chalked up excellent performance during – A record TWh of electricity was generated in the United States from nuclear energy inaccording to the U.S.
