    the star will evolve to. In This paper, we will be studying neutron stars, which is one possible evolution of supergiant stars that have mass up to 20 time the mass of the sun. What is are neutron stars When a supergiant star collapse and it mass is more than the Chandrekhar limit (maximum mass of stable white dwarf star) but it mass is not great enough to overcome the pressure of the neutrons a neutron star is born. The term neutron star is referring to a star with mass aboutto and with a radius

    dwarfs, they range in size, temperature, and density. One particular type is a neutron star. They have many interesting properties, from extreme density, magnetism, and gravity, to scorching heat that makes our own sun seem like a warm, tropical beach. The environment on a neutron star is incomprehensibly brutal. Neutron stars are the leftovers of stars with a mass of four to eight times that of our own sun. A neutron star can be formed when the star goes supernova. A star goes super nova when the

    Neutron Star Duality A neutron star, at first glance, may seem like the smallest stellar remnant of them all, but with deeper inspection you will be baffled to know that is it the most massive of all the stellar remnants. This neutron star and it’s many wonders, including contrasts, and levels of understanding is a great image for the cover to represent the paradox and counter intuitive nature of Sharon Olds poems in The Gold Cell; the poem “Summer Solstice” is a great representation of similarity

    bigger picture and the smaller picture. Research that has led to the discovery of protons and neutrons has allowed us to realize that there is an even smaller particle that makes these infinitely tiny particles; that particle is the quark. A Quark is a type of subatomic particle that is currently the smallest form of matter in the known universe. These particles are what make up both neutrons and protons. Neutrons and protons are made of three quarks put together. Quarks are also used to build mesons.

    as a tamper/ reflector to minimize the escape and capture of neutrons. Depending on what happens to the free neutron produced, different types of chain reaction results in different uses. For a nuclear power reactor, a sustaining chain reaction is required. It’s where the number of neutrons does not increase or decrease; it remains constant. To get the most yield from a nuclear weapon and to increase its efficiency, you need more neutrons. Works Cited http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leucippus http://science

    which contains positively charged protons and also neutrons which have no charge. Orbiting the nucleus are electrons these are negatively charged. The negatively charged electrons and positively charged protons attract each other thus why the atom stays as it is. The size of a nucleus is said to have a diameter of 1x10-14m and the atomic diameter is said to be 1x10-10m. Therefore the nucleus is 10000 times smaller than the atom. Protons, neutrons and electrons have a mass and a charge and this can

    Radiation has existed throughout the entire existence of earth. Scientists did not know about radiation until very recently because radioactive materials look the same as non-radioactive materials. It was not until February of 1896, when a French scientist named Antoine Henri Becquerel did an experiment using naturally fluorescent minerals to study x-ray properties, which were discovered by Wilhelm Roentgen, that scientists became aware of the existence of radioactivity. Becquerel “exposed potassium

    Fission Or Fusion

    1 kg (2.2 lb) of uranium-235 releases 18.7 million kilowatt-hours as heat. Second, the fission process initiated by the absorption of one neutron in uranium-235 releases about 2.5 neutrons, on the average, from the split nuclei. The neutrons released in this manner quickly cause the fission of two more atoms, thereby releasing four or more additional neutrons and initiating a self-sustaining series of nuclear fissions, or a chain reaction, which results in continuous release of nuclear energy. Naturally

    radioactive nucleuses can be contained and used as fuel for the power. Most of this power is fueled by uranium isotopes. These isotopes are highly radioactive. The isotope catches the fast moving neutrons created by the splitting atoms, it repels the slower moving protons and electrons, then gathers the neutrons and pulls them inward. While all these atoms are flying about they smash together then split many of many times, this is when the reactor grabs and pulls in the frictional energy to be processed

    example, Iodine 131 can diagnose and treat cancer of the thyroid glands. Iodine 131 may have many positive uses, however, if ingested the affects can seriously harm one’s body. Alpha Decay is when an unstable atom’s nucleus releases two protons and two neutrons (commonly referred to as a helium atom), which are called alpha particles (Lab, n.d.) . Since both mass and atomic number changes, the element also changes (Lab, n.d.). Alpha particles cannot go through paper (Lab, n.d.), nevertheless, can cause
