The Valid and Invalid of the Nuclear Energy Have you ever imagined living without the energy? According to the science dictionary, energy is defined as the capacity of a physical system to perform work. Nowadays people use lots of energy in their life. They use light energy when they turn on or turn off the light. Also, they obtained wind energy and solar energy as a ‘green’ energy from the environment. The application of energy wrought major changes in our society. People invented solar batteries, solar chargers, and even build a solar house. If energy always influenced society with good effects, the society will grow positively and make economic development. However, the energy does not always give positive solutions to the society.

When the nuclear energy work positively, people obtained lots of merits from them, yet, if not, people and all the environment get in to extreme danger. In the simplest term, nuclear energy is energy from interaction with the protons and neutrons of an atom, and the energy obtained during nuclear reaction. It is relating to the strong force, and this energy is released by nuclear reaction called fission and fusion. Fission is the action of dividing of splitting something into two more parts. Fusion is the process or result of joining two or more things together to form a single entity. Nuclear reaction like fusion and fission release very high amounts of energy. How is energy obtained from this source?

There are lots of benefits to using nuclear energy. These are the advantages of nuclear energy: Produces large amount of energy, green energy, no air pollution, and fuel independence. Nuclear energy has ability to produces a million times more energy as compared to other energy such as hydro or wind energy. Moreover, it can

There is energy uses that involved both advantages and disadvantages of nuclear energy. Radiation is “the emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as moving subatomic particles, especially high-energy particles that cause i`onization. Moreover, it is one of the biggest drawback of nuclear energy. People used radiation when they taking picture of inside body by using x-ray, and remove cancer cell. Also, they used radiation when they create plant mutant. Radiation is necessary for the people since they used a lot in their life. However, radiation is more come in contact with the environment and resulting in severe damage to the ecosystem and loss of life rather than provide comfortable life. Too much radiation cause human die and give side effect since it has large amount of nuclear energy. Also, lots of nuclear waste will be left after using radiation, and those nuclear waste cannot be eliminated. Transporting nuclear waste is also one of the biggest issue. Nuclear waste is produced by the nuclear fuel cycle at every stage, from uranium mining and enrichment, to reactor and nuclear spent fuel- reprocessing operation. The vast majority of nuclear waste produced will remain dangerous for hundreds of thousands of years, and will leave a toxic legacy for many
