Summary
"Written to provide students who have limited backgrounds in the physical sciences and math with an accessible textbook on nuclear science, this edition continues to provide a clear and complete introduction to nuclear chemistry and physics, from basic concepts to nuclear power and medical applications. Incorporating suggestions from adopting professors, the discussion of neutron cross sections is expanded, coverage of the nuclear fuel cycle is now included, and international terms are incorporated. This updated, expanded edition provides a much-needed textbook and resource for undergraduate students in science and engineering as well as those studying nuclear medicine and radiation therapy"-- Provided by publisher.
