    A dynamic model developed earlier is used to describe the last stage of nuclear fission: the postscission motion of fission fragments. In this process, Coulomb repulsive energy turns into the kinetic energy of fission fragments measured by experimenters. It is shown that the dissipated energy can be as high as 10% of the average experimental kinetic energy.
