5 Matching questions

  1. Nuclear Fuel
  2. Wind Turbine
  3. Fuel Rods
  4. Atomic Bomb
  5. Uranium 238
  1. a a stable non-fissionable isotope of uranium
  2. b A bomb developed in the 1940's by the US, uses critical mass of U-235 or plutonium to create uncontrolled chain reaction (fission) which releases massive amounts of energy, which causes catastrophic destruction
  3. c fuels created from fissionable material
  4. d A turbine powered by wind mills, this is an alternative or renewable energy source
  5. e sub-critical masses of fissionable U-235 or plutonium

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. an accident in a nuclear reactor where the fuel overheats and melts the reactor core
  2. a chemical reaction or other process in which the products themselves promote or spread the reaction, which under certain conditions may accelerate dramatically.
  3. Reactor using fuel/control rods to create heat, used to make steam to eventually spin a turbine
  4. A bomb developed in the 50's. this bomb uses uncontrolled nuclear fusion to release massive amounts of energy. Detonated by first detonating the Atomic Bomb
  5. Waste which gives off high amounts of ionizing radiation for a short time and, lower amounts for a long time, requires safe storage for 240,000 yrs

5 True/False questions

  1. Generatora device that converts the kinetic energy captured by a turbine into electrical enrgy

          

  2. Low Level Radioactive WasteWaste which gives off high amounts of ionizing radiation for a short time and, lower amounts for a long time, requires safe storage for 240,000 yrs

          

  3. Fusionthe process by which the nuclei of small atoms combine to form a new, more massive nucleus; the process releases energy

          

  4. Fossil FuelNonrenewable energy resource formed from the remains of organisms that lived long ago. i.e oil, coal, natural gas

          

  5. Reactor VesselFuels that contain Carbon. Fossil Fuels and Biomass Fuels are both organic
