Read a book on nuclear energy and share it with your friends. While it won’t compete with cocktail chatter about ‘Dancing with the Stars’, in fact, nuclear energy is the stuff stars are made of. Although they are tiny, atoms have a large amount of energy holding their nuclei together. Certain isotopes of some elements can be split and will release part of their energy as heat. This splitting is called fission. The heat released in fission can be used to help generate electricity in powerplants. Uranium (U) is one of the isotopes that fissions easily.

  In “A Bright Future,” Joshua S. Goldstein and Staffan A. Qvist look to Europe for examples of how nuclear energy can help solve the global warming crisis. In the early s, when the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission believed high-grade uranium ores to be in short supply domestically, it considered extracting uranium for nuclear weapons from the abundant U.S. supply of fly ash from coal burning. In , China began exploring such extraction, drawing on a pile of some million metric tons of brown-coal fly ash at Xiaolongtang in Yunnan.

Nuclear fusion is the process by which nuclear reactions between light elements form heavier elements. In cases where the interacting nuclei belong to elements with low atomic numbers (e.g., hydrogen [atomic number 1] or its isotopes deuterium and tritium), substantial amounts of energy are vast energy potential of nuclear fusion was first exploited in thermonuclear weapons, or. Nuclear Power — Act II: 2. Do we need more power plants? 3. Environmental problems with coal, oil, and gas: 4. Is the public ready for more nuclear power? 5. How dangerous is radiation? 6. The fearsome reactor meltdown accident: 7. The Chernobyl accident — can it happen here? 8. Understanding risk: 9. Costs of nuclear power plants — what.

Nuclear Energy: An Introduction to the Concepts, Systems, and Applications of Nuclear Processes, Eighth Edition, provides essential information on basic nuclear physics, systems and the applications of nuclear comprehensively covers Basic Concepts, Radiation and Its Uses, and Nuclear Power, providing students with a broad view of nuclear energy and science in a fast-paced format that.

Nuclear Energy is one of the most popular texts ever published on basic nuclear physics, systems, and applications of nuclear energy.

This newest edition continues the tradition of offering a holistic treatment of everything the undergraduate engineering student needs to know in a clear and accessible way. This book is very detailed in the describing the basics of nuclear energy, different methods used to create nuclear reactions, the various types of reactors used in nuclear power plants, their construction, safety considerations and the economics of nuclear power compared to alternative means for /5(38).

nuclear energy, the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom and released through fission, fusion, or these processes a small amount of mass is converted to energy according to the relationship E = mc 2, where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light (see relativity).The most pressing problems concerning nuclear energy are the possibility of an accident or systems.

This book presents a view of nuclear energy as an important carbon-free energy option. It discusses the nuclear fuel cycle, the types of reactors used today and proposed for the future, nuclear waste disposal, reactor accidents and reactor safety, nuclear weapon proliferation, and the cost of electric by: This chapter opens the book by connecting fundamental, and most likely familiar, concepts of forces, power, and energy forms to the subject matter of nuclear energy.

Energy forms addressed include potential, kinetic, mechanical, electrical, thermal, radiant, and electromagnetic energies.

Nuclear Energy What Everyone Needs to Know® Charles D. Ferguson What Everyone Needs To Know® Easy to navigate, accessible Q&A format is ideal for an introduction to the subject of nuclear energy. In a clear, engaging style, the book provides a comprehensive survey of this controversial topic.

It´s a rather straightforward book with punctual questions and relatively short answers (3 pages max per question). I was interested in the fundamental aspect of the energy generation and its relevance regarding climate change (that´s like 25% of the book) but the theory behind nuclear energy is presented in a simple and not very engaging manner, and regarding Climate Change it didn´t /5.

The overall status of nuclear power has changed rather little over the past eight years. Nuclear reactor construction remains at a very low ebb in much of the world, with the exception of Asia, while nuclear power’s share of the electricity supply continues to be about 75% in.

capacity factors is that nuclear power plants have relative low fuel costs (per unit of energy generated) compared to other sources of generation, therefore it makes economic sense to operate them at high capacity factors [4].File Size: 1MB.

Fission and Fusion. There are two fundamental nuclear processes considered for energy production: fission and fusion.

Fission is the energetic splitting of large atoms such as Uranium or Plutonium into two smaller atoms, called fission products. To split an atom, you have to hit it with a neutron. Purchase Nuclear Energy - 5th Edition.
