In a nuclear reactor this process is controlled by control rods. These control rods stops some of the neutrons and make the progess slower, which keeps the chain reaction at a safe and stable level. \cite{Wikipedia}

has a very high pressure which spins the turbine and a generator, and generate electrity. The water then enters a condenser to cool it down and is send back to the reactor. \cite{U.S.NRC}

The problem is that in document the first cite is labeled "[2]" and the second cite "[1]". How do I sort it by appearence in the document?

Welcome to TeX.SX! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces or enclose words in backticks `, they'll be marked as code, as can be seen in my edit. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "{}" on it). – Christian Hupfer May 16 '14 at 18:18
Why do you have \bibliographystyle{ieeetr}? – Torbjørn T. May 16 '14 at 18:20
Searched for solutions on google and that code appeard, but didn't work. I forgot to delete it, before I posted it here. – RandomDude May 16 '14 at 18:23
