When combined with water, the heat produces steam which is then used to generate electricity that we can use in our properties. The nucleus is made up of particles known as protons and neutrons. The protons and electrons of an atom are attracted to one another and each carries an electrical charge. Protons have a positive charge and electrons have a negative charge. The constructive charge of the protons is the same as the unfavorable charge of the electrons, making the atom balanced once they have an equal number of protons and electrons. Neutrons carry no electric cost and their quantity might range.
