5 Matching Questions

  1. Cooling Tower
  2. Uranium 235
  3. Geothermal Energy
  4. Reactor Vessel
  5. Atomic Bomb
  1. a The part in the containment building where the fuel rods come together to begin the chain reaction, and where the control rods are placed in between the fuel rods to slow the chain reactions
  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 tower in which the extremely high temperature steam (from the light water plant design) is cooled and condensed back into water to be reused
  4. d energy produced by heat from the earth
  5. e an unstable, fissionable isotope of uranium

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. A turbine powered by wind mills, this is an alternative or renewable energy source
  2. Neutron absorbing material that slows the chain reaction
  3. 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
  4. a device that converts the kinetic energy captured by a turbine into electrical enrgy
  5. Energy can not be created or destroyed, but it can change form

5 True/False Questions

  1. High Level Radioactive WasteGives off low levels of ionizing radiation for a shorter time period, requires safe storage for 100 to 500 yrs


  2. Fissionthe process by which the nucleus of a heavy atom splits into two or more fragments; the process releases nuetrons and energy


  3. Containment Buildingthe part in a light water plant design where the reactor vessel, steam generator and back-up cooling water are held


  4. Fossil FuelFuels that contain Carbon. Fossil Fuels and Biomass Fuels are both organic


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