Nuclear Physics Bombs and Reactors What is Nuclear Physics? The Nucleus The Most Famous Equation Fusion Fission The Aftermath The study of the nucleus, its components, its creation, and its destruction. The protons (+) are held together by the strong force. Fission is the fragmenting of a large nucleus like uranium by firing a neutron into it.
The uranium atom becomes unstable and splits. Releasing lots of energy. Two small atoms combine to make a larger one.

Energy is released as the new atom is lighter than the sum of its parts. Types of Radiation
Alpha (Helium atom)
Beta (electrons)
Gamma (gamma ray)
Neutron Its components: protons and neutrons Its creation and destruction are the two sources of energy for nuclear power and weaponry. Energy can is stored in the breaking and forming of bonds between nucleons. E is for energy (Joules).
m is for mass (kg).
c is for the speed of light (m/s). Chernobyl Cesium-137 Maintenance gone wrong.
Safety system shut down during test.
Power drop leads to mishandling and explosion.
100 times radiation of bombs
