The Hydrogen Bomb
Basic Construction of the Teller-Ulam Device
Stage 1 High-explosive fires in primary, compressing plutonium core into supercriticality and beginning a fission reaction.
Stage 2 Fission primary emits X-rays which reflects along the inside of the casing, irradiating the polystyrene foam.
Stage 3 Polystyrene foam becomes plasma, compressing secondary, and plutonium sparkplug begins to fission.
Stage 4 Compressed and heated, lithium-6 deutheride fuel begins fusion reaction, neutron flux causes tamper to fission. A fireball is starting to form...

Radioactivity Nuclear Fission and Fusion. Definition: breaking an unstable nucleus into two smaller nuclei Basic formula Element+ Neutron → + 3 neutronsSmaller.
NUCLEAR WEAPONS Paul Sneller.
NUCLEAR ENERGY Nuclear energy originates from the splitting of uranium atoms in a process called fission. This energy is used at the power plant to generate.
The Sun and Us The Sun’s Energy. Energy leaves the sun in the form of heat and electromagnetic radiation Result from the fusion reactions in the sun.
Nuclear Radiation NC Essential Standard Types of Radiation, Penetrating Ability of Radiation, Nuclear Equations, Nuclear Decay, Half-Life, Fission.

Nuclear fission You can split the nucleus of an atom into two smaller fragments with a neutron. This method usually involves isotopes of uranium (uranium-235,

For each atom, in its natural state, the number of electrons and the number of protons is equal. This number may or may not be the same as the number.
