“Provocative A fresh look at nuclear power [that asks] whether the threat of global warming has changed the calculus of nuclear risk.” —The Washington Post Book World “Illuminating A picaresque, flat-out love song to the bad boy of the great American energy debate.” —The Wall Street Journal “Engaging and unusual.”Cited by: nuclear energy, the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom and released through fission, fusion, or radioactivity. In these processes a small amount of mass is converted to energy according to the relationship E = mc 2, where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light (see relativity). This chapter opens the book by connecting fundamental, and most likely familiar, concepts of forces, power, and energy forms to the subject matter of nuclear energy. Energy forms addressed include potential, kinetic, mechanical, electrical, thermal, radiant, and electromagnetic energies. Books shelved as nuclear-power: Gone by Michael Grant, Power to Save the World: The Truth About Nuclear Energy by Gwyneth Cravens, Voices from Chernobyl.
On the surface, the book Power to Save the World is about nuclear energy. More fundamentally, however, Power to Save the World is a book about overcoming assumptions and preconceived notions. In the final chapter, Cravens concludes, “The power to save our world does not lie in rocks, rivers, wind, or sunshine. It lies in each of us.”4/5. Nuclear Energygy in the US,, todayy US reactors, GWe is 13% of US installed capacity but provides about 20% of electricity. In nuclear energy production in the US was the highest ever. US plants have run at % capacity in , up from 56% in 35 GWe oof f uprates were permitted iin n tthe he last decade. This clear and compelling book could spark the transformation in energy policy that the world needs. Joshua S. Goldstein is Professor Emeritus of International Relations at American University. He is the author of six books about war, peace, diplomacy, and economic history, and a bestselling college textbook, International Relations. Nuclear energy is produced when an atom's nucleus is split into smaller nuclei by the process called fission. The fission of large atoms, such as Uranium and Plutonium , produces a.
Marine Nuclear Power Technology Yu, J. () This book introduces readers to basic approaches in and principles of marine nuclear power design, including overall reactor design, in-core design, coolant systems and devices, Available Formats: eBook Hardcover. This book is very detailed in the describing the basics of nuclear energy, different methods used to create nuclear reactions, the various types of reactors used in nuclear power plants, their construction, safety considerations and the economics of nuclear power /5(38). Nuclear energy is the energy in the nucleus, or core, of an atom. Atoms are tiny units that make up all matter in the universe, and energy is what holds the nucleus together. There is a huge amount of energy in an atom's dense nucleus. In fact, the power that holds the nucleus together is officially called the "strong force."Nuclear energy can be used to create electricity, but it must first. Nuclear Energy What Everyone Needs to Know® Charles D. Ferguson What Everyone Needs To Know® Easy to navigate, accessible Q&A format is ideal for an introduction to the subject of nuclear energy. In a clear, engaging style, the book provides a comprehensive survey of this controversial topic.
