Presentation1uranium

  1. 1. Atomic Number 92 -
  2. 2. • slightly softer than steel • strongly electropositive • poor electrical conductor • malleable • Ductile • Paramagnetic • very high density • slightly softer than steel • strongly electropositive • poor electrical conductor • malleable • ductile • paramagnetic • very high density Properties of Uranium
  3. 3. Uranium’s Nuclear Properties •Uranium-235 is the only naturally occurring fissile isotope •Several man made Uranium isotopes are fissile •Uranium-238 is fertile and can create plutonium-239
  4. 4. Uses for Uranium-235 •Uranium-235 fissile properties allow it to be used in the nuclear bomb •A nuclear reaction is caused by neutrons splitting the nucleuses of many atoms releasing huge amounts of nuclear energy
