A nuclear bomb
or atomic bomb
This nuclear weapon is called an atomic bomb or a nuclear bomb
The release of excess binding energy.
Uranium-235 react with thermal neutrons in a nuclear reaction called fission. The enormous energy released by the nuclear fission can be transformed in electricity and heat in nuclear reactors.
Definition: energy from nuclear fission or fusion: the energy released by nuclear fission or fusion
During the detonation of a nuclear bomb an enormous amount of energy is released as fission due to the splitting (fissioning) of atoms of uranium or plutonium. In the case of a simple nuclear weapon (such as those dropped on Japan during World War 2) this is where the explosion stops. In the case of a hydrogen bomb, also referred to as a thermonuclear weapon, the energy released by the fission is used to trigger the fusion of atoms of hydrogen, releasing energy in the same way that the sun produces energy.
The heat released by nuclear fission is transformed in electrical energy.
The energy released is nuclear energy.
Nuclear fission of uranium-235 release fission energy.The fission energy is enormous compared to the energy obtained from fossil fuels.
Plutonium is the core of a nuclear weapon; the nuclear fission release an enormous quantity of energy and radiations.
Nuclear energy generated by nuclear fissions of nuclear fuels.
