no. The most commonly used radioactive material is Americium

Typically, Uranium. In most Pressurized Water Reactors, Uranium-235 or -239.

The most commony used elements would be precious metals such as gold and silver. Copper, steel, uranium and fluorine are also commonly used.

Most commonly used material to produce nuclear energy in Uranium.

== You'll find that uranium-235 is the most commonly used radionucliee, and plutonium-239 can be used as well, though the latter is selected as a fuel choice much less often. An extremely distant third is uranium-233. Links can be found below.

The primary uranium ore mineral is uraninite (UO2) or pitchblende (UO3, U2O5), commonly collectively refered to as U3O8(the most stable form). A range of other uranium minerals can be found in various deposits.

The most common uranium minerals are uraninite (pitchblende) and carnotite. Also uranium is a by-product in the mining of gold, vanadium, phosphates.

Uranium. Plutonium can also be used in both but less commonly in nuclear reactors (but extensively in weapons).

There are different elements for different types of nuclear bombs, but for nuclear fission, the most commonly used are: Uranium and Plutonium.

Fuels used in nuclear reactors are, indeed, radioactive. Uranium or plutonium are the most commonly used fuels, and both are radioactive.

Uranium is not used in the petroleum industry.

No. Uranium is generally used in solid form.

The uranium is used for fuel for cars and rockets

Most commonly, the fuel at a nuclear power station is uranium or is made from uranium.

- Enriched uranium is used as explosive in some nuclear weapons. Depleted uranium is used for: - armors - projectiles - ballast
