Energy decription
In physics energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms, but cannot be created or destroyed. Nuclear energy is the energy released during nuclear fission or fusion, especially when used to generate electricity. Atoms contain large amount of energy that holds together their nuclei. Nuclear energy is produced when an atom's nucleus is split into smaller nuclei by the process called fission. The fission process releases the heat that can be used to assist in generating electricity in power plants. When enough uranium is brought together under specific conditions, a continuous chain reaction which is a result of series of fissions occurs. Large amount

Energy is the lifeblood of industrial economies and the key to new developments for developing nations. Secure energy is a matter of reliable, adequate, and affordable supply. Higher oil and gas prices have not only been painful for many economies, but a spate of price disputes has also brought the vulnerability of supply into sharp relief. Nuclear power is increasingly seen as a way to reduce dependence on foreign oil and natural gas, to combat rising energy costs, and to achieve ever-elusive. Nuclear energy is a clean, safe, reliable and competitive energy source. Currently it is seen as the only source of energy to replace other part of fossil fuels which harm the environment and emits large amount of greenhouse gases. Almost no carbon dioxide, and sulfur dioxide or nitrogen oxides are produced in nuclear plants. Nuclear power should be deployed to replace coal, oil and gas in the industrial countries. In the future, nuclear electric power plants will also provide power for electric vehicles for cleaner transportation. As one of the advantages of nuclear power, water discharged from the plant contains no harmful pollutants and even meet regulatory standards for
