Denuclearization?!

Ask yourself about its real meaning, then act accordingly! That’s the way, aha aha! 😉 Welcome back friends from the US, the UK, Canada, India, and Portugal 😉

I bet you’ve heard the word “Nuclear” hundred times or more but you probably do not exactly what a nuclear power is. Of course it sounds sophisticated materials since it requires a professional to explain what a nuclear power exactly is.

The other day Shawna told Amy why no country want to comply with denuclearization? When I heard that it occurred to me that many of us do not have any idea about that word or its details.

Russell did some research and came up with a definition for the “Nuclear Power” or “The Nuclear Energy”:

Nuclear energy and fossil fuel energy have similarities in the way they are extracted. The basis behind running a fossil fuel power plant can be illustrated by examining a typical fire. In this instance, organic matter such as wood or natural gas is burned and converted into CO2 (see Figure 1). In this case, we change which atoms bond to each other and harvest the energy that is released when they reach a more stable configuration (as CO2). In a nuclear power plant, we are doing the same thing: extracting energy from atoms that ultimately gets converted to electricity. However, in a nuclear reaction, we don’t just rearrange which atoms bond to which. We change the atoms themselves, and the energy released is enormous.

  Figure 1: In both combustion and nuclear fission, the particles that make up atoms and molecules are rearranged into a more stable form, which causes a release of energy.

These materials could be more enjoyable for a chemist or a researcher, but the truth is that you need to know some stuff about that subject so by the time you are asked: “Are you with  or against “The Nuclear Energy/Power”, you would be able to answer. Right?

Disregard the chart if it is a bit complicated for you, and just think of what a nuclear energy is until we talk some more about it.

Until then, check on our topics, you’ll find plenty of inspiration for your next big idea, with our hugs and kisses ❤
