  • Pros And Cons Of Nuclear Fusion

    and other energy sources without thinking about where that power came from, or how it was harnessed. The amazing demand for energy drives innovators to continually think about new innovations to capture and harness power. The massive need for endless amounts of energy is there and few methods alone can match the energy required. In response, humans have begun their quest for a source of energy that is clean and renewable. In a recent survey, 62% of people stated that they are willing to use green power over power generated by fossil fuels. Many people are set on wind or solar, but there are many other options out there that make more sense in terms of reliability and efficiency. Nuclear fission was once thought to be the new energy powerhouse, but has dissolved after many catastrophes and radioactive waste. Scientists are now turning to fusion to answer the call for a clean and renewable energy source. Most people are familiar with the sun and the raw power that it possesses. Nuclear fusion is responsible for lighting up the Milky Way Galaxy and Earth. It has been the dream of scientists to harness the power of the sun right here on Earth. Scientists have found that the sun’s power comes from combining atoms. In order to combine atoms,…

  • The Pros And Cons Of Nuclear Chemistry

    of chemistry, nuclear chemistry, deals with radioactivity and nuclear processes. The most notable of these processes is transmutation. Transmutation refers to the action that changes an atom of a specific element to a different element, either naturally or artificially. Natural transmutations are the radioactive decay of a large, unstable isotope into a more stable, less massive sample. These types of changes to the nucleus occur naturally as the particle tries to restore its stability. In…

  • Chemical Biological And Nuclear Weapons Case Study

    can be expensive and time-consuming. Moreover, chemical weapons are cost effective, they can be attained at relatively low costs when compared to conventional weapons and limited amounts can trigger immense effects (Croddy 8). Besides uses in battle, the terrorist group, Aum Shinrikyo, demonstrated that severe effects, i.e. death, injury, and terror, can be evoked by public releases by evidence of their Sarin attack on the Tokyo subway. However, chemical weapons are “mentally linked to the most…

  • Nuclear Fusion Essay

    Nuclear Fusion and the Remains of a Dead Star Throughout the history of Earth, multicellular organisms rely on one thing, the sun. And throughout the observable universe, there are million of stars out there just like our sun. These stars could be different however, with either more mass, volume, heat, etc. In our high school career, we learn a lot about astronomy, such as the order of the planets in our solar system. We also learn about gravity, rotation of planets, and how long it takes…

  • Influence On J. Robert Oppenheimer's Life And Work

    J. Robert Oppenheimer had a very interesting life that undoubtedly influence his works in science. He was born on April 22, 1904 in New York City, New York. The Oppenheimers were Ashkenazi Jews. In his childhood, J. Robert Oppenheimer moved to Manhattan. Early on, Oppenheimer attended Alcuin Preparatory School. However, in 1911, he switched and began attending the Ethical Culture Fieldston School. His family was a part of the Ethical Culture Society. The Ethical Culture Society was an outgrowth…

  • The Manhattan Project: Julius Robert Oppenheimer

    The FBI was following Oppenheimer before and after the war. The FBI recovered communist sympathies from Oppenheimer during his time at Berkeley. It gave the political enemies evidence against Oppenheimer in the commission. He was brought amongst the House Un-American Activities Committee, which he testified that he was in a Communist Party in 1930s. Oppenheimer found himself in a power struggle again. The two scientists that brought forth the hydrogen bomb design were pushing for the funding…

  • Radar In The 1950's

    In the 1950s, technology was slowly evolving and as it evolved so did the methods used in war and how Americans viewed the government and entertainment. Radar was one of the first advances to contribute to the war, then the development of the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer that helped develop the fusion bomb. Next, the first satellite was sent to revolve around the Earth, but it was from the Soviet Union, which resulted in Americans drive to develop Explorer 1. It ultimately…

  • Argumentative Essay On Nuclear Weapons

    Fission was used in the original atomic bombs, and fusion is most commonly used today. This is due to the fact that the amount of energy that can be released from fission is limited, whereas fusion can theoretically release an unlimited amount of energy. Fusion is the same type of reaction that occurs on stars, thus obviously very powerful. Fusion occurs when two atoms are “fused” together and release a stray neutron. Thermonuclear bombs are much more powerful, and produce significantly greater…
