How Nuclear Power Works
In order to turn nuclear fission into electrical energy, nuclear power plant operators have to control the energy given off by the enriched uranium and allow it to heat water into steam. Enriched uranium typically is formed into inch-long (2.5-centimeter-long) pellets, each with approximately the same diameter as a dime. Next, the pellets are arranged into long rods, and the rods are collected together into bundles. The bundles are submerged in water inside a pressure vessel.
Fission And Fusion: en, energy, fission, fusion | Glogster EDU - Interactive multimedia posters
The fission process often produces free neutrons and photons (in the form of gamma rays which can cause cancer), and releases a very large amount of energy even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay. In nuclear physics, nuclear fusion is a nuclear reaction in which two or more atomic nuclei collide at a very high speed and join to form a new type of atomic nucleus. #Glogster #Fusion #Fission

A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission or a combination of fission and fusion. Both reactions release vast quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter. The first fission ("atomic") bomb test released the same amount of energy as approximately 20,000 tons of TNT. #Glogster #NuclearBomb #Physics
