In general, nuclear energy comes from the energy associated with atomic nuclei. There is nuclear fusion, which happens in stars and in fusion weapons, and there is nuclear fission. Nuclear fusion is the "combining" of lighter atomic nuclei to create heavier ones, and many fusion reactions release energy. (Again, think of stars.) In contrast, nuclear fission is the "splitting" of atomic nuclei to release energy. The latter is technology that we've come to use fairly widely, and we have developed fission nuclear weapons and the nuclear reactor to tap nuclear energy via fission. Let's look at the latter device, the reactor.
The fission of nuclear fuel (also known as atomic fuel, such as uranium or plutonium) is where we get nuclear energy. And what happens during nuclear fission is that the nuclei of fuel atoms absorb neutrons and fission (split), releasing lots of energy. In fission, that larger atomic nucleus breaks into a pair of smaller ones, and these fission fragments recoil with a lot of kinetic energy. The fuel traps the fission fragments, and the energy they came away with is converted into thermal energy in the fuel.
We derive nuclear energy by tapping the energy of formation of atomic nuclei via fusion or fission. This is advanced technology that is less than a century old. We're still working to use it well and wisely.
Nuclear Energy is made up of atoms that can be naturally made or man made.
nuclear energy is a type of energy made by splitting atoms when the atoms split they make energy
Gamma radiation is a type of nuclear radiation made of high energy waves.
Nuclear energy was present very shortly after the universe was made.
nuclear energy/atomic energy. This can be converted to electrical energy atoms are separated by a electron microscope nuclear cannot be seperaated
No no form of man-made nuclear energy was created until 1942
technically its not made by anywhere is comes from inside a atom...
Yes, nuclear energy is energy.
It is because that kinetic and heat energy are movement. Nuclear energy is electromagnetic waves that are made of protons, which are objects that move, not simply movement.
Nuclear fusion produces nuclear energy
nuclear energy.....to produce nuclear energy the materials are expencive so nuclear energy is good but expensive to make and use it as energy
It is nuclear energy, which is released either by nuclear fission or fusion
The law that people go by is: Energy can not be destroyed or created by nature.Nuclear energy is man made though, with our nuclear power plants. So this contains the correct information for Nuclear Energy. This happens because of the splitting/smashing of atoms, creating a powerful enough energy to power homes and other appliances.
Nuclear energy and renewable energy are not related. Renewable energy does not use nuclear energy.
If you're considering nuclear energy, then nuclear power is generated by nuclear fission, generally with radioactive bombardment. Basically, atoms are split into smaller components and release energy, and we use that to generate steam for electric power.
Because it is energy derived from the heat made by a (Hopefully) controlled nuclear reaction. The nuclear reaction involves the nucleus of Uranium 235 (or possibly Plutonium 239) fissioning or splitting which releases a large amount of energy, so it is a nuclear process, not a chemical one such as would occur between atoms or molecules.
Nuclear energy is converted to electrical energy in a nuclear power plant.
Nuclear energy generated by nuclear fissions of nuclear fuels.
Nuclear reactions like nuclear power plants ^_~
For example plutonium is a nuclear fuel; also the isotope 233U.
