Nuclear energy-This is energy that binds togethercomponents of an atomic nucleus This is made by theprocess of nuclear fission Nuclear fission is produced whenan atomic atom is split The way nuclear pore is made is ina nuclear reactor this is most likely located in a nuclearpower plant the fission that is produced is when a heavyelement splits in half or is halved into two smaller nuclei thepower of the fission is located by the rate of the splitting ofthe nuclei at once which causes watts of electricity to beforced into the energy type Energy that is released by the nuclear fission matchesalmost completely to that of the properties of kinetic fissionparticles only that the properties of the nuclear energiesnucleus are radioactive These radioactive nucleuses canbe contained and used as fuel for the power Most of thispower is fueled by uranium isotopes These isotopes arehighly radioactive The isotope catches the fast movingneutrons created by the splitting atoms it repels the slowermoving protons and electrons then gathers the neutronsand pulls them inward While all these atoms are flyingabout they smash together then split many of many timesthis is when the reactor grabs and pulls in the frictionalenergy to be processed into electrical watts This usually causes heat or thermal energy this mustbe removed by some kind of a coolant Most power plantsuse water or another type of liquid based formula thesecoolants are always base related never acidic Very fewuse gas related coolants in there reactors these are knownas thermal reactor based power plants Another nuclearreactor type is a type that runs off of uranium oxide theuranium oxide is a gas form of the solid uranium Thesefuels which cause the radioactive particles usually arealways highly radioactive themselves Because of this allthe power plants take high safety standards and use specialshields to prevent leakage Usually the leakage can causenuclear contamination This means they must take highsafety standards After nuclear fission has occurred many of the thermalneutrons are
