- Fusion reactions are inhibited by the electrical repulsive force that acts between two positively charged nuclei. For fusion to occur, the two nuclei must approach each other at high speed to overcome the electrical repulsion and attain a sufficiently small separation (less than one-trillionth of a centimeter) that the short-range strong nuclear force dominates.
- Naturally occurring uranium contains only 0.71 percent uranium- 35; the remainder is the non-fissile isotope uranium- 38. A mass of natural uranium by itself, no matter how large, cannot sustain a chain reaction because only the uranium- 35 is easily fissionable.
- Lithium, which is the lightest of all metals is plentiful on the earths crust, there is so much on the crust that right now they say there is enough to provide the planet with over a thousand years of electricity.
- Nuclear FusionFor a fusion reaction to take place, the nuclei, which are positivelycharged, must have enough kinetic energy to overcome their electrostaticforce of repulsion. This can occur either when one nucleus isaccelerated to high energies by an accelerating device, or when theenergies of both nuclei are raised by the application of very hightemperature.
- Fusion energy seems to be the most promising energy source of the not-too-distant future. It is safe, it uses an energy supply that is so abundant that it will never run out, it gives off harmless waste, and it produces energy comparable to the Earth’s sun!
- Nuclear energy, also called atomic energy, is the powerful energy released by changes in the nucleus (core) of atoms. The heat and light of the sun result from nuclear energy. Scientists and engineers have found many uses for this energy, including the production of electric energy and the explosion of nuclear weapons.
- The “big bang” which created the universe, only created the elements Hydrogen (H) and Helium (He) and possibly a very small amount of Lithium (Li). However, a glance at the periodic table of the elements shows that today (some 15 billion years after the big bang) there are at least 108 known elements.
- Nuclear weapons are weapons capable of mass destruction. They are powered by two reactions, fission and fusion. These weapons produce massive explosions and hazardous radioactive products. Some miniaturized tactical weapons have the force of a kiloton of TNT.
- Nuclear FussionFor a fusion reaction to take place, the nuclei, which are positively charged, must have enough kinetic energy to overcome their electrostatic force of repulsion. This can occur either when one nucleus is accelerated to high energies by an accelerating device, or when the energies of both nuclei are raised by the application of very high temperature.
- Scientists are now trying different methods here on Earth to make fusion the next large-scale energy source. The most suitable reaction occurs between the nuclei of the two isotopes of Hydrogen – Deuterium and Tritium. Scientist have already begun to test reactions involving just Deuterium or Deuterium and Helium (3He).
- Atomic bombs were the first nuclear weapons to be developed, tested, and used. In the late 1930s physicists in Europe and the United States realized that the fission of uranium could be used to create an extremely powerful explosive weapon. In August 1939, German-American physicist Albert Einstein sent a letter to U.
- In March of 1989, a discovery was made that rocked the scientific world. Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischman had announced that they were able to create and sustain a cold fusion process. After intense media attention, and corresponding interest in future test, the subject seemed to have faded away.
- The term Nuclear Reactor means an interaction between two or more Nuclei, Nuclear Particles, or Radiation, possibly causing transformation of the nuclear type; includes, for example, fission, capture, elastic container. Reactor means the core and its immediate container.
- Sunspots are patches on the surface of the Sun that are cooler than the surrounding region by several hundred degrees. They, therefore, appear as dark spots on the Sun’s hot surface, hence their name. They usually last for several days and sometimes up to several weeks.
- Pictures of these various stages are mind-boggling in their beauty and bring one to an immense sense of awe at the machinations of the universe.
- What exactly are nuclear weapons? How do they work? Who thought up the concept of nuclear weapons? When have they been used? Why have they been used? Most people don t know the answers to all these questions, but would really like to understand the reasons behind nuclear weapons.
- The way he Rutherford Ernest Rutherford was a New Zealand scientist. Many of our current views of matter come from him. He was the first to do the gold foil experiment. He also developed his own structure of the atom in 1911. The nucleus was positive and the empty space arou Bohr Niels Bohr picked up where he thought Rutherford left off.
- Capturing sunlight is not as easy as it sounds. It is a dilute energy source, spread out over time and space. Earth receives 5.6 x 1018 (5,600, , , , , ) megajoules of solar radiation each year (Box 1), but to make it worthwhile we need to collect it over many hours and across many square metres of ground.
- Topics of Physiology They are usually divided into operations of specific organ systems. The Principle of Complementarity of structure & Function – Anatomy & Physiology are taught together because the functions always reflect the structure.
- You are watching the control panels and gages for rector two Sitting comely you think about how easy your job is It is a joke! All day you sit around and watch the gages for reactor number two just to make sure they maintain their settings You don t even need to look at the gages either because a computer automatically regulates them without you Life is so good Suddenly all the sirens go of and the gages and displays spin wildly in every direction The ground shakes and you can hear the sound of a deep rumble Unknown to you, the reactor s cooling pumps have failed to cool the reactor s core and
