How Nuclear Reaction Taking Place in Sun (stars)?

Nuclear Reaction Taking Place in Sun (stars) It has been estimated that the sun is giving out energy equally in all possible directions at the......

Describe Uses of Radioactive Isotopes

Uses of Radioactive Isotopes: Radioactive Isotopes are the study of reaction mechanism Mechanism of photosynthesis in plants A small quantity of Radioactive CO2 containing radioactive......

Define and Describe on Mechanism of Fission

Mechanism of fission: In the fission process, the heavy nucleus absorbs a neutron and forms an unstable compound nucleus. The compound nucleus then breaks up more......

What is Nuclear Fusion?

When lighter nuclei moving at a high speed are fused together to form a heavy nucleus, the process is called nuclear fusion. In fusion reaction,......

What is Nuclear Power Generator?

Nuclear Power Generator: A nuclear reactor or nuclear power generator is a kind of furnace for carrying out the controlled fission of a radioactive material like......

Describe Types of Nuclear Reaction

There are two types of Nuclear Reaction Spallation reaction These are the reactions in which high speed projectiles may chip a heavy nucleus into several......

Describe on Hydrogen Bomb

The highly destructive hydrogen bomb is also based on the fusion reactions of hydrogen to form helium producing large amount of energy. Hydrogen bomb consists......

Which facts are taken into account while expressing a Nuclear Reaction?

The following facts are taken into account while expressing a nuclear reaction i) Reactions are written like a chemical equation. Reactants are written on the......

Difference between Chemical Reactions and Nuclear Reactions

Difference between chemical reactions and nuclear reactions In ordinary chemical reactions, the nuclei of the atoms taking part in a chemical reaction remain unaffected. Only......

What is Radioactivity?

The phenomenon of spontaneous disintegration of certain atomic nuclei resulting in the emission of radioactive rays is called radioactivity. Unstable atomic nuclei will spontaneously decompose......

How to Measure Half Life Period?

The time required to disintegrate one half of any radioactive substance is called half life period (t½). The half life period (t½) of a radioactive......
