How is nuclear energy different from geothermal energy?
Asked in Energy, Nuclear Energy, Geothermal
Where does the energy for geothermal nuclear and tidal come from?
1. Geothermal - comes from the earth's internal heat. Opinions differ somewhat on where this comes from, but it seems to be accepted that this is partly heat left from the very hot rocks the earth was formed from, and partly from radioactivity deep in the earth. 2. Nuclear - comes from fission of nuclei of uranium and plutonium, which releases energy because mass is destroyed. 3. Tidal - comes from gravitational effects of the sun and moon on the oceans
Asked in Science, Inventions, Nuclear Energy
What is the origin of nuclear energy?
There are two major types of nuclear energy, fusion and fission. Fusion comes from hydrogen nuclei sticking together in the hearts of stars, which liberates energy. Fission energy comes from the splitting of heavy nuclei. A third type of nuclear energy comes from the slow decay of unstable isotopes, most generally through the release of alpha or beta particles. Both of these are the result of a transmutation of the isotope. Fissionable isotopes are produced naturally in supernova.

Asked in Geology, Chemistry, Nuclear Energy
What is one element formed when uranium nuclei are split?
Where dose nuclear energy come from?
atoms's sub-particles electron neutron and proton are held together by very strong nuclear force if we supply energy enough these forces tend to break and along with disintegration of atoms it releases lot of energy. nuclear energy comes from breaking these forces by the methods of fission(breaking the particle from large nuclei to small nuclei) while fusion (combining two small nuclei into bigger nuclei of atoms) energy produced in fusion is much larger as compared to fission
Asked in Energy
Which sources of energy come indirectly from the sun?
Fossil fuel energy: originated in plant and animal life which depended on the sun as a source of energy. Wind energy: comes from the sun heating the air both directly and indirectly by heating the land and water surfaces of the earth which then transfer energy to the air. Wave energy: comes from the wind acting on the surface of the ocean and the wind got its energy from the sun. Biomass energy: comes from plants which get their energy from the sun via photosynthesis. Nuclear energy: doesn't come indirectly from the sun, but it does come from dying stars since the heavy element uranium was produced in novas and supernovas. Geothermal energy: comes partially from radioactive decay of the heavy elements uranium and thorium which originated in novas and supernovas, but the rest comes from gravity during the original formation of the earth.

What energy has sun fusing hydrogen atoms in helium and release energy?
Why is nuclear fuel non-renewable?
nuclear fuel comes from radio active substances like uranium, plutonium etc., hence uranium etc., will be required to produce energy....only limited supply of uranium etc is there in earth...once this is used up nuclear energy can't be produced...unlike wind energy which is renewable because as long as the wind blows energy is produced... so its renewable...but its not the case in nuclear energy which depends on the availability of radioactive substances....conservation of energy is thus necessary for the future....
