Atomic energy. Conceptual computer artwork of a reaction occuring at the atomic level, showing a release of energy. Electron orbit paths are seen as rings around the central nuclei (red and blue clusters) of these atoms. This is a classical schematic Bohr model of atoms. In quantum physics, it is thought that the electrons do not actually follow a defined orbit, but instead inhabit areas of probability around the nucleus.
