Nuclear Power – The energy released by a nuclear reaction, especially by fission or fusion
Nuclear energy uses fuel made from mined and processed uranium to make steam and generate electricity.
Now Use Caution, Loose Electrons Are Reacting
The initial letters of "now use caution, loose electrons are reacting" make the word nuclear to remind you that nuclear power is all about the energy from the atom.
An atom with electrons, neutrons and protons:
Nuclear energy is the energy in the nucleus, or core, of an atom.
Nuclear power is the practice of splitting atoms to boil water, turn turbines and generate electricity.
Nuclear Power Generator:
Steam is produced from the nuclear reactor, which turns a turbine, which then generates electricity.
