NUCLEAR ENERGY

  1. 1.  means the energy released by controlled nuclear reactions. http://energylaw.uslegal.com/sources-of-energy/nuclear-energy/
  2. 2. Natural nuclear energy which is produced naturally. Example: heat and light produced by the sun and other stars through nuclear reactions is natural nuclear energy. http://energylaw.uslegal.com/sources-of-energy/nuclear-energy/
  3. 3.  Man-made nuclear energy is one generated with the help of nuclear reaction operations under human control. Example: the energy generated by explosion of atomic and hydrogen bombs are man-made nuclear energy. http://energylaw.uslegal.com/sources-of-energy/nuclear-energy/
  4. 4.  it produces more energy when compared to hydro and wind energy. Currently about 18% of the world’s electricity is generated through nuclear energy;  it does not emit carbon dioxide or other air pollutants from the operation of its reactors;  it uses uranium as its fuel which is abundantly present in the earth. http://energylaw.uslegal.com/sources-of-energy/nuclear-energy/
  5. 5. it can be used for production and expansion of nuclear weapons which may case large scale devastation;  it requires large capital cost;  it produces unstable waste elements that are highly radioactive; and  it is dangerous to the environment as well as human health because of the radiation that it produces and lack of economical and safe disposal of radioactive nuclear wastes.  http://energylaw.uslegal.com/sources-of-energy/nuclear-energy/
  6. 6. NUCLEAR FUSION NUCLEAR FISSION http://renewableenergyindex.com/nuclear/examples-of-nuclear-energy
  7. 7. http://renewableenergyindex.com/nuclear/ex amples-of-nuclear-energy NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS - This gives off heat which is in turn used to generate electricity. WEAPONS - These weapons can be one hundred times more destructive than atomic bombs, and also have the capability to demolish cities and kill thousands of people. FOOD PROCESSING - Radiation kills micro-organisms, bacteria, and other deadly things that could be in your food before it has been packaged.
  8. 8. RADIATION THERAPY One of the more modern, and common, uses for nuclear energy is cancer treatment. SUBMARINES Nuclear submarines run off of a nuclear reactor, which provides a great deal of power for a much longer time than fossil fuels. As an added bonus, these submarines run quietly because no sound is generated by nuclear fission. STARS Some of the nuclear energy that is produced is done so naturally. Stars, such as the sun, make light and heat by nuclear reactions particularly nuclear fusion. In this way the source of solar energy is nuclear energy.
  9. 9.  Each tube of highly powerful powder is extremely delicious and safe to eat! With 90mg of caffeine per tube you can take in moderation throughout the day for smooth nuclear delivery or down a whole tube in one shot for a massive nuclear meltdown. Each powder has a sweet and tangy flavor. http://www.chemicalevolution.com/product_info.ph p?products_id=220
  10. 10. NUCLEAR ENERGY TO MEDICINE Nuclear medicine is a type of medical imaging used to treat and diagnose several diseases, such as heart disease and cancer, using radioactive material in small amounts. NUCLEAR ENERGY TO ELECTRICITY A nuclear reactor produces and controls the release of energy from splitting the atoms of uranium.
  11. 11. NUCLEAR ENERGY TO LIGHT ENERGY The sun gets its energy by nuclear fusion, and this creates a very hot outer layer. In fact the sun appears to us as a black body would when heated to about 6000 degC. NUCLEAR ENERGY TO THERMAL ENERGY Nuclear thermal rocket a working fluid, usually liquid hydrogen, is heated to a high temperature in a nuclear reactor, and then expands through a rocket nozzle to create thrust.
  12. 12. Energy source - We need energy for heat, to cook, for transportation, and to run all of our technological equipment.  Does not emit carbon dioxide or other air pollutants from the operation of its reactors  Contributes in local, regional and national economies.  Provides more than 63% of the country’s emission-free electricity.  http://scienceline.ucsb.edu/getkey.php?key=1361
