Visualize nuclear science.
- Describes basic nuclear processes and the modern picture of the nucleus and then applies them to the formation of the Universe
Nuclear Science, part of the highly popular Contemporary Physics Education Project (CPEP) series, explores the structure, properties and interactions of atomic nuclei.
It illustrates the known isotopes with a chart of the nuclides in graphic form, traces radioactive decay from alpha to gamma and shows how new elements are found. Many of the applications of nuclear science are described.
