Nuclear Fission Diagram - nuclear power plants run on uranium an element so energy rich that a single fuel pellet the size of a fingertip contains as much energy as 17 000 cubic feet of natural gas 1 780 pounds of nuclear weapon designs are physical chemical and engineering arrangements that cause the physics package of a nuclear weapon to detonate there are three existing basic design types pure fission weapons the simplest and least technically demanding were the first nuclear weapons built and have so far been the only type ever used in an act of war over wartime japan introduction know and understand that during the process of nuclear fission atomic nuclei split know and understand that this process releases energy which can be used to heat water and turn it nuclear energy the practice nuclear energy is the usable energy extracted from atomic nuclei via controlled nuclear reactions and nuclear power plants have.
been used for mercial electricity generation for over half a century in 2005 16 of the world s electricity was generated by nuclear power source nuclear energy institute nei and as of july 2008 there were more than 430 back to top of section 4 4 1 elements of fission weapon design 4 1 1 dimensional and temporal scale factors in section 2 the properties of fission chain reactions were described using two simplified mathematical models the discrete step chain reaction and a thermonuclear weapon or fusion weapon is a second generation nuclear weapon design which affords vastly greater destructive power than first generation atomic bombs modern fusion weapons consist essentially of two main ponents a nuclear fission primary stage fueled by uranium 235 or plutonium 239 and a separate nuclear fusion secondary stage containing thermonuclear fuel the the nuclear fuel cycle is the series of industrial.
processes which involve the production of electricity from uranium in nuclear power reactors uranium is a relatively mon element that is found throughout the world it is mined in a number of countries and must be processed before it can be used nuclear fission occurs when the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more pieces this seemingly simple concept is actually quite a plex phenomenon that lay undiscovered for the first forty years of nuclear based on excerpts from section 2 of nuclear weapons frequently asked qustions by carey sublette teller ulam summary all thermonuclear weapons existing in the world today appear to be based on a scheme usually called the teller ulam design after its inventors stanislaw ulan and edward teller or staged radiation implosion for a physically descriptive designation
