STEAM HEAT waterThe energy thus produced is used in a nuclear reactor toproduce electricity
The energy produced is also used for the purpose of destruction in an ATOM BOMB
ALBERT EINSTEIN and the ATOMIC BOMB The physicist Albert Einstein did not directly participate in the invention of the atomic bomb. But as we shall see, he was instrumental in facilitating its development THROUGH
In 1905, as part of his Special Theory of Relativity, he made the intriguing point that a large amount of energy could be released from a small amount of matter. This was expressed by the equation E=mc2(energy = mass times the speed of light squared). The atomic bomb would clearly illustrate this principle. Fatman
vBut bombs were not whatEinstein had in mindwhen he published thisequation.
The theory of relativity is what used innuclear reactors to produce electricity Here heat energy is produced based on the equation
IN NUCLEAR FISSION +SO THE LOST MASS IS CONVERTED INTO ENERGY MASS > MASSAT A RATE GOVERNED BY THE FORMULA E=MC2
NUCLEAR FUSION FUSION MEANS JOINING LIGHTERNUCLEI TO MAKE A HEAVIER NUCLEUS
HERE HYDROGEN ISOTOPES ARE FUSED TO CREATE HELIUM
SO IN NUCLEAR FUSION TOO MASS IS CONVERTED TO ENERGY AS THE SUM OF THE MASSES OF THE ORIGINALINDIVIDUAL NUCLEI IS GREATER THAN THE NUCLEUS THEN OBTAINED
CONSIDERABLE ENERGY IS NEEDED TO FORCE THENUCLEI TO FUSE .AND THE CONDITIONS NEEDEDFOR THIS PROCESS ARE EXTREME –1.MILLIONS OF DEGREES OFTEMPERATURE.2.PASCALS OF PRESSURE This condition is satisfied in a star
So nuclear fusion reactionsare the source of energy in the sun and other stars
Hydrogen bomb works on this principleBut how hydrogen bomb satisfiesthe necessary conditions for fusionto happen?
WORKING OF A HYDROGEN BOMBA NUCLEAR BOMB BASED ON THEFISSION OF URANIUM OR PLUTONIUM ISPLACED AT THE CORE OF THE HYDROGENBOMB.THIS NUCLEAR BOMB IS EMBEDDED IN ASUBSTANCE WHICH CONTAINSDEUTERIUM AND LITHIUM
WHEN THE NUCLEAR BOMB IS DETONATED THE TEMPERATURE OF THIS SUBSTANCE IS RAISED TO10000000K IN A FEW MICROSECONDSTHE HIGH TEMPERATURE GENERATESSUFFICIENT ENERGY FOR THE LIGHTNUCLEI TO FUSE AND A DEVASTATINGAMOUNT OF ENERGY IS RELEASED
IN SHORT THE FUSION INHYDROGEN BOMB IS FUELED BY THE FISSION.
Nuclear energy has long posed a dilemma for environmentalists. As a cheap, clean source of power that does not use fossil fuels or add greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, it offers an appealingalternative to power from traditional coal- fired plants. Yet nuclear energy is associated with troubling environmentalissues, including the problem of radioactive waste disposal.
The byproduct generated from the fission of nuclear fuel in the form of uranium or plutonium creates what is called nuclear waste. This waste comes in huge variety of extremely radioactive material with half-lives ranging from 8 days to hundreds of thousands of years. In other words their radioactivity takes a really, really long time to decay, thousands of times our human life-times. These fission products if released to the environment will last a long time, and the worst part is that it is almost impossible to decontaminate them.
