Atomic energy definition
Atomic energy is also called "nuclear energy." That is, the energy released when the nucleus changes, such as the heavy energy released by heavy nuclear fission and light nuclear fusion. The application of radiation emitted by radioisotopes in medical and food preservation is also an important aspect of atomic energy applications. Before the discovery of atomic energy, humans only know that there are mechanical energy in the world, such as the kinetic energy of motor sports; there are chemical energy, such as burning alcohol into carbon dioxide gas and water to release heat; there is electrical energy, when the current passes through the electric furnace wire, it will emit heat and light. . The release of these energies does not change the quality of matter, it only changes the form of energy.
