What nuclear fusion reactions go on inside stars, and what does it depend on? Find about the proton proton chain reaction.
Leo Szilard (1898 - 1964) ideas included the linear accelerator, cyclotron, electron microscope, and nuclear chain reaction. Equally important was his insistence that scientists accept moral ...
A look at how cosmic rays create a chain reaction that cause a lot of particles to shower down.
Very simple experiment showing the reaction between two nuclei at different temperatures. The temperature is set with a cursor in millions of degrees. The reaction is then played.
Read how stars like our sun use the proton-proton chain to generate energy by turning hydrogen to helium
A nice slideshow covering the history and ideas of fission and fusion, including decay chains and the E=MC2 equation.
An applet which allows the user to see how a car stops given certain braking conditions.
A brief description of how Chainsaws work from HowStuffWorks.com.
This is the process which fuels the Sun and other stars which have core temperatures less than 15 million Kelvin. A reaction cycle yields about 15 MeV of energy.
This thinkquest site explains the chemical reaction behind fire.
