Nuclear physics is the area of science that studies the structure of atomic nuclei and the transformations that nuclei undergo. It is important to have a good understanding of the nucleus to have a coherent picture of matter and energy. Furthermore, nuclear physics has given rise to a host of technologies in medical science and life science research.
