Asked in Science, Physics, Nuclear Energy
What is the difference between nuclear power and nuclear energy?
Nuclear energy is a quantity of energy measured in Joules, so it has the same units as mechanical or electrical energy. Nuclear power is the rate of production of nuclear energy, so it is Joules per second, or Watts, as other forms of power are. Remember: power = energy flow per second. This applies to all forms of energy. ...
