nuclear energy
Nuclear Energy
  • Relativity
  • Fission energy
  • Radioactive decay
  • Cross-sections
  • Nuclear thermal rockets
relativistic energy
Relativistic Energy
  • For all particles
  • For photons
  • For
radioactive decay
Radioactive Decay
  • Consider uranium alpha decay
  • Decay rate is proportional to number left
  • Activity measured in Sieverts
cross section
Cross-Section
  • Cross-section = s
  • Units
    • 1 barn=10-24cm2
nuclear thermal propulsion
Nuclear Thermal Propulsion
  • Solid Core
    • 850-950 second Specific Impulse
  • Gas Core
    • 1800-1950 second Specific Impulse
