Expert Answer:

Nuclear energy is related to nucleus of an atom. Energy produce due changes in nucleus of an atom is called nuclear energy. Nuclear energy can be produce in two ways
1. Fission reaction - when a large molecule break into smaller molecules and during this process a very huge amount of energy is released like uranium break down in lower masse and produce massive energy
2. Fusion reaction - when two smaller atom combine together to form large molecule and during this process a huge amount of energy is released. Like energy coming from sun is an example of energy produce during fusion reaction.
