Nuclear Energy Examples

Nuclear Energy

Nuclear energy is energy that is stored within the nucleus of atoms. The only way for this energy to be released is through the splitting of or joining of atomic nuclei. A chemical reaction cannot release nuclear energy. Nuclear energy is our most concentrated form of energy. In other words, we get the most useable energy from smaller amounts of nuclear energy sources.

Examples of Nuclear Energy:

1. A fission reaction at a nuclear power plant provides enough energy to give electricity to large cities.

2. The fusion reaction in the sun provides our planet with all of the energy it needs for living organisms to survive.

3. An uncontrolled fission reaction provides the destructive force of a nuclear bomb.
