NUCLEAR ENERGY, ENERGY released during a nuclear reaction as a result of the transition of MASS into energy as described in the equation: E = mc2 (where E is energy, m is mass, c is the speed of light) it was derived by A. EINSTEIN in his THEORY of RELATIVITY. This is part of the report that my son did to school, in physics. Experts from the homework site https://studydaddy.com/physics-homework-help
. I can't throw off the whole report because it's mine, but I think there's a lot of information on the Internet. Nuclear energy is released in two ways: by Dividing the atomic nucleus and by NUCLEAR SYNTHESIS. The fission of an atomic nucleus is a process that takes place in an atomic b0mb, as well as in NUCLEAR REACTORS of fission, which are now used around the world. The fission reaction of the atomic nucleus was discovered by Otto Hahn and Fritz Shtrasmann in 1938; and in 1942, Enri-ko FERMI first received a nuclear CHAIN REACTION. Nuclear fusion is a source of energy for the sun, stars, and also in the hydrogen b0mb. It also provides the prospect of obtaining cheap energy, which can be done as soon as a method is found to control nuclear fusion reactions.
