Nuclear Physics

Nuclear power is made possible by the process of nuclear fission. Fission is but one of a large number of nuclear reactions that can take place. Many reactions other than fission are quite important because they affect the way we deal with all aspects of handling and storing nuclear materials. These reactions include radioactive decay, scattering, and radioactive capture. This lesson is designed to provide an understanding of the forces present within an atom.
