  1. Generator
  2. Hydroelectric Energy
  3. Uranium 238
  4. Fossil Fuel
  5. Atomic Bomb
  1. a a stable non-fissionable isotope of uranium
  2. b Nonrenewable energy resource formed from the remains of organisms that lived long ago. i.e oil, coal, natural gas
  3. c electrical energy produced by the flow of water
  4. d 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
  5. e a device that converts the kinetic energy captured by a turbine into electrical enrgy

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. Plant material, manure or any other organic matter that is used as an energy source
  2. Energy can not be created or destroyed, but it can change form
  3. Neutron absorbing material that slows the chain reaction
  4. Radiation which dislodges electrons form the molecules they hit causing them to change chemically and impair normal functions, effects: burned tissue, anemia, impaired cell division, cancer
  5. Gives off low levels of ionizing radiation for a shorter time period, requires safe storage for 100 to 500 yrs

5 True/False Questions

  1. Cooling TowerA 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

          

  2. Chain Reactiona chemical reaction or other process in which the products themselves promote or spread the reaction, which under certain conditions may accelerate dramatically.

          

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

          

  4. Wind TurbineA turbine powered by wind mills, this is an alternative or renewable energy source

          

  5. Nuclear ReactorReactor using fuel/control rods to create heat, used to make steam to eventually spin a turbine
