What is the release of nuclear particles and energy called?
Nuclear particles and energy are released in both the nuclear decay of a radioactive material and in nuclear fission. (Recall that fission can be spontaneous or can be induced by neutron absorption. Or, RadioActive Decay ...
Asked in Radioactive Decay
What type of nuclear decay release energy but not an particle?
This is a change in the internal energy of the nucleus, releasing a gamma ray or photon. Radioactive decay s the type of nuclear decay that releases energy but not a particles. ...

What is a nuclear reaction What is released as a result?
The result of the nuclear reaction is an atom that is different to the original atom; the emission of alpha, beta, or gamma radiation; and usually a release of energy - though some reactions can actually absorb energy. ...

Why nuclear and radiant energy are alike?
Not quite sure what you mean by 'nuclear energy'. Energy is one single thing: the ability to perform work. There are different carriers for energy. The motion of particles can carry energy: this we call kinetic energy. Energy can also be carried by EM-radiation, such as light or microwaves. Energy is also stored in various forms: the forces that bind subatomic particles together store a huge amount of energy. Nuclear power is generated by making atoms release some of this energy (through fission...
What is the difference between nuclear energy and thermal energy?
Thermal energy is the kinetic energy of the particles, while nuclear energy is the bond energy within the nucleus from strong interaction and weak interaction. ...
What is the release of light energy by particles of matter that have absorbed energy?
"phosphorescence" Scattering is the release of light energy by particles of matter that have absorbed energy. The transfer of energy carried by light waves to particles of matter is absorption. ...
The release of light energy by particles of matter that have absorbed extra energy is called?
what is the release of light energy by particles of matter that have absorbed extra energy called? ...
Asked in Physics, Nuclear Fission
How nuclear fission works?
Nuclear fission is quite simply when an atom is split. It is done my hitting atoms with other atoms so they break up into their individual particles. This can be used as a reliable energy source, as when nuclear fission occurs there is a huge release of energy. This is because when split into it's individual particles, an atom does not require energy to hold it together any more, so this energy has to go somewhere and is released. Nuclear fission...

How nuclear source of energy is man made resource?
When we obtain nuclear energy from elements in the earth like Uranium, what we are doing, is obtaining energy which produced by splitting up subatomic particles. So we obtain the atomic energy from splitting up the atomic particles, not from the uranium itself, which is a natural resource. Since the splitting up of subatomic particles is completely "man-made", if you will and does not occur in the environment, Nuclear energy is a man made resource ...
Asked in Nuclear Weapons
What are the different types of nuclear weapons?
There are no different " Types " of weapons. It is what occurs inside of the bomb. nuclear fusion is when 2 nuclear particles join. Nuclear fission is when 2 nuclear particles split. Particle fusion is when 2 helium particles join. Say each particle weighs 1 gram. If 2 collided, then you would think that the mass would be 2. Well, there is a release of energy which is equivalent to a nuclear bomb going off. This occurs millions of times...
