Presentation Transcript

  1. Nuclear Fission and Fusion

  2. Nuclear Fission • Nuclear fission: a very heavy nucleus SPLITS into more stable nuclei of intermediate mass. • Can occur spontaneously or when nucleus is bombarded with a particle. • Atomic bomb and nuclear reactors

  3. Nuclear power plantsuse energy as hear from the nuclear reactors to product electrical energy

  4. Fusion (the sun and hydrogen bomb) Fusion: low-mass nuclei combine to form a more stable nucleus. • Releases more energy than fission and less waste • Researching ways to control fusion reactions, however there is no known material that can withstand the heat of a fusion reaction.
