    A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from nuclear reactions, either fission or a combination of fission and fusion. Both reactions release vast quantities of energy from relatively small amounts of matter; a modern thermonuclear weapon weighing little more than a thousand kilograms can produce an explosion comparable to the detonation of more than a billion kilograms of conventional high explosive.

    a weapon, usually bombs, powered by nuclear fission.

    E=MC squared is the nuclear formula.

    also, for the record, you could state your questions a bit better.
