1.1 Definition

• Nuclear energy is energy that is generated
  through the use of Uranium, a natural metal that
  is mined all over the world. Nuclear energy is
  created through complex processes in nuclear
  power stations, the energy stored in the nucleus
  of an atom and released through fission, fusion,
  or radioactivity, In these processes a small
  amount of mass is converted to energy
  according to the relationship E = mc2 , where E
  is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light.
