Most conventional weapons use chemical reactions to release energy and cause explosions. Such weapons would include those that use gun power, TNT, plastic explosives, etc. With a nuclear weapon, large amounts of energy are released through a nuclear fission (atomic bomb) or the fusion reaction between isotopes of hydrogen (thermonuclear bomb).
