by John McCarthy This page discusses nuclear energy as a part of a more general discussion of why human material progress is sustainable and should be sustained. Energy is just one of the questions considered. Up to: Main page on why progress is sustainable Incidentally, I'm Professor of Computer Science at Stanford University, emeritus as of 2001 January 1. Here's my main page . I write about sustainability as a volunteer public service. I am not professionally involved with nuclear energy. Here's a new page on Nuclear Energy Now . It is motivated by the Bush Administration in the U.S. having tentatively re-opened the question of building new nuclear plants in the U.S. I hope they persist and are successful. One of the major requirements for sustaining human progress is an adequate source of energy. The current largest sources of energy are the combustion of coal, oil and natural gas. These are discussed in the main page on energy . They will last quite a while but will probably run out or become harmful in tens to hundreds of years. Solar energy will also work but is not much developed yet except for special applications because of its high cost. This high cost as a main source, e.g. for central station electricity, is likely to continue, and nuclear energy is likely to remain cheaper. Q. What are the details on nuclear energy?

Fission and Energy
This section deals with the theory and operation of nuclear fission reactors as a practical energy source. Over 30 countries around the world now operate nuclear power stations, and many countries are heavily reliant on nuclear power. Around 17% of the world's electricity now comes from nuclear energy. The World Nuclear Association in London is a good site to start for general information. If your browser can handle PDF files, then I particularly recommend their factsheets The theoretical basis for fission is the massive energy release which occurs when a heavy nucleus divides into two smaller ones. Only a few very heavy nuclei undergo fission spontaneously, while others can be encouraged to undergo fission by the addition of energy when a neutron is absorbed. Such fissile materials (as they are known) include U and Pu. During the fission process, a number of neutrons are released, and if these go on to induce new fission events, a chain reaction results. The use of a controlled chain reaction is the basis for all nuclear power stations.

5. Nuclear Energy An Overview
This page is an over view of nuclear power. There are two fundamental ways to release energy from nuclear reactions fission and fusion of atomic nuclei.
Nuclear Energy
(An Overview)
Also See Our Nuclear Issues Web Page
Nuclear energy in California produced 40,417 million kilowatt/hours (GWh) of electricity in 1999, or 14.66 percent of electricity from all sources. The total dependable capacity of California's nuclear-supplied power is more than 5,300 megawatts, including the two operating nuclear power facilities in California and portions of nuclear facilities in other states owned by California electricity companies. There are two fundamental ways to release energy from nuclear reactions: fission and fusion of atomic nuclei. Electricity generating technologies based on fission are commercially available, whereas fusion is still in the early stages of research and development and is at present only a theoretical possibility for controlled power generation. Nuclear fission is the process of splitting the nuclei of atoms, which releases energy from within those atoms. Nuclear fusion is the process of joining, rather than splitting, such atomic particles with similar releases of energy.
Of the several types of fission reactors, the most common type in the United States is light water reactors (so called because normal (light) water is used to cool the reactor core; some reactors use heavy water, which contains hydrogen atoms with an additional neutron in the nucleus), based on pressurized water reactor (PWR) and boiling water reactor (BWR) technology. PWRs and BWRs use uranium-235, a naturally-occurring radioactive isotope of uranium, as the fuel. As the nucleus of a uranium-235 atom is hit by a neutron, it splits into two smaller atoms of other elements, and releases energy and extra neutrons. Those neutrons hit more atoms of the original uranium-235, creating a fission chain reaction that releases more energy and neutrons.

Chapter 13: Nuclear Energy - Fission and Fusion
Another major form of energy is nuclear energy, the energy that is trapped inside each atom. One of the laws of the universe is that matter and energy can't be created nor destroyed. But they can be changed in form. Matter can be changed into energy. The world's most famous scientist, Albert Einstein , created the mathematical formula that explains this. It is: E m c
This equation says: E [energy] equals m [mass] times c c stands for the velocity or the speed of light. c means c times c, or the speed of light raised to the second power or c-squared.] You can listen to Einstein's voice explaining this at: Please note that some web browser software may not show an exponent (raising something to a power, a mathematical expression) on the Internet. Normally c-squared is shown with a smaller "2" placed above and to the right of the c.
Scientists used Einstein's famous equation as the key to unlock atomic energy and also create atomic bombs. The ancient Greeks said the smallest part of nature is an atom. But they did not know 2,000 years ago about nature's even smaller parts.

It is carried out in the European Union (EU) as a part of the 'Research and Training Programme in the field of Nuclear Energy' within the Framework Programmes of the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM).
Nuclear fission energy contributes successfully to meeting a large part of the ever-growing demand of energy world-wide. It supplies a third of the EU's electricity without emitting greenhouse gases.
Nuclear energy enables the EU to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 7% a year - the equivalent of the carbon dioxide (CO ) emissions produced by some 75 million cars. Thus, nuclear power contributes significantly to

Nuclear Fission
An atom's nucleus can be split apart. When this is done, a tremendous amount of energy is released. The energy is both heat and light energy. This energy, when let out slowly, can be harnessed to generate electricity. When it is let out all at once, it makes a tremendous explosion in an atomic bomb. The word fission means to split apart.
A nuclear power plant (like Diablo Canyon Nuclear Plant shown on the right) uses uranium as a "fuel." Uranium is an element that is dug out of the ground many places around the world. It is processed into tiny pellets that are loaded into very long rods that are put into the power plant's reactor. Inside the reactor of an atomic power plant, uranium atoms are split apart in a controlled chain reaction. In a chain reaction, particles released by the splitting of the atom go off and strike other uranium atoms splitting those. Those particles given off split still other atoms in a chain reaction. In nuclear power plants, control rods are used to keep the splitting regulated so it doesn't go too fast. If the reaction is not controlled, you could have an atomic bomb. But in atomic bombs, almost pure pieces of the element Uranium-235 or Plutonium, of a precise mass and shape, must be brought together and held together, with great force. These conditions are not present in a nuclear reactor.

    The first large scale use of nuclear fission occurred on July 16, 1945, in New Mexico, with the test of the world's first atomic bomb. Following the Second World War, research was undertaken on how to use the power of the atom for "peaceful" purposes. In 1955, the U.S. navy submarine "Nautilus" travelled over 62,000 miles, powered by a single lump of uranium the size of a golf ball. Shortly thereafter, electricity was produced in commercial amounts by reactors in both the U.S. and the then Soviet Union; and Canada soon developed its own reactor design, the CANDU reactor. In the following years, nuclear reactors were envisioned as a clean and cheap source of electricity, capable of meeting vastly increased demand in the future. Miniature backyard reactors were also seen as possibilities for supplying heat to single family homes. At the present time, about 430 nuclear reactors are connected to the world's electricity grids, supplying 16% of the world's electricity demand. The majority of these reactors are located in the industrialized countries of the world. This amount of electricity generation is far less than that which had been predicted back in the 1960s when nuclear power was in its infancy. The increasing cost of nuclear power plant construction is one reason why nuclear energy has not lived up to its potential; but the main reason is safety concerns. Nuclear power plant accidents such as those at Three Mile Island in Pennsylvania and Chernobyl in the former U.S.S.R. have drastically increased public opposition to nuclear power. Recent worldwide concern over the threats of global warming and acid rain has, however, resulted in some renewed interest.

    Nuclear Energy
    Fission Fission occurs when the nucleus of an atom divides into two smaller nuclei. Fission can occur spontaneously; it may also be induced by the capture of a neutron. For example, an excited state of uranium (created by neutron capture) can split into smaller " daughter " nuclei. Fission products will often emit neutrons because the N/Z ratio is greater at higher Z. With a proper arrangement of uranium atoms, it is possible to have the neutrons resulting from the first fission event be captured and to cause more uranium nuclei to fission. This "chain reaction" process causes the number of uranium atoms that fission to increase exponentially. When the uranium nucleus fissions, it releases a considerable amount of energy. This process is carried on in a controlled manner in a nuclear reactor, where control rods capture excess neutrons, preventing them from being captured by other uranium nuclei to induce yet another uranium fission. Nuclear reactors are designed so that the release of energy is slow and can be used for practical generation of energy. In an atomic bomb, the chain reaction is explosively rapid.

      Fig. 14-1. Fission of U after absorption of a thermal neutron.
    The relevant nuclear reactions can be written as follows: U + n fission products + neutrons + energy (~200 MeV) (1) U + n U + gamma rays (2) U Np Pu (a series of beta decays). (3) An integer number of neutrons, for example, either two, three or four, are emitted in the reactions leading to different pairs of fission products described in reaction (1). The average number is 2.43. Some of the neutrons in reaction (1) can be used to induce fission in another U nucleus, thus continuing a controlled, self-perpetuating nuclear chain reaction. Some fraction of the remaining neutrons from reaction (1) are utilized in reaction (2) to produce Pu. The rest are absorbed in other nuclei without further effect. The isotope Th, although not fissionable with thermal neutrons, is a possible energy source because it absorbs thermal neutrons to produce long-lived U, which also undergoes thermal neutron fission with a high probability. Thus the "big three" readily fissionable nuclei are: U

    Nuclear Binding Energy Curve
    The binding energy curve is obtained by dividing the total nuclear binding energy by the number of nucleons. The fact that there is a peak in the binding energy curve in the region of stability near iron means that either the breakup of heavier nuclei (fission) or the combining of lighter nuclei (fusion) will yield nuclei which are more tightly bound (less mass per nucleon). The binding energies of nucleons are in the range of millions of electron volts compared to tens of eV for atomic electrons. Whereas an atomic transition might emit a photon in the range of a few electron volts, perhaps in the visible light region, nuclear transitions can emit

    Thermonuclear Explosions
    Because of the high temperatures required to initiate a nuclear fusion reaction, such devices are often called thermonuclear devices. A thermonuclear explosion can be created only by producing the required temperature, about a hundred-million Kelvins, and by forcing the material together so quickly that it will fuse rapidly. This is typically done with the isotopes of hydrogen, deuterium and tritium. This led to the term "hydrogen bomb" to describe the deuterium-tritium fusion bomb. To obtain the two parts of the fuel, pellets were made from lithium hydride, LiD, made with the deuterium isotope. The only way which was found to produce the ignition temperature was to set off a fission bomb such that it would heat and compress the lithium hydride. In the process, the lithium was bombarded with neutrons, breeding tritium. Then the deuterium-tritium fusion reaction could take place. Index

    Hydrogen Bomb
    Because the thermonuclear explosive devices used hydrogen isotopes deuterium-tritium fusion ), the resulting bombs were often called "hydrogen bombs". The first hydrogen bomb was detonated on November 1, 1952 at the small island Eniwetok in the Marshall Islands. It's yield was several megatons of TNT. The Soviet Union detonated a fusion bomb in the megaton range in August of 1953. The U.S. exploded a 15 megaton fusion bomb on March 1, 1954. It had a fireball 4.8 km in diameter and created a huge characteristic mushroom-shaped cloud. Analysis of the radioactive fallout from this bomb revealed it to be a fission-fusion-fission weapon, a "hydrogen bomb" with an outer sheath of natural uranium to increase the yield.
