  2. b the minimum amount of radioactive material necessary for a chain reaction
  3. c electrical energy produced by the flow of water
  4. d 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. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. the process by which the nucleus of a heavy atom splits into two or more fragments; the process releases nuetrons and energy
  2. the process by which the nuclei of small atoms combine to form a new, more massive nucleus; the process releases energy
  3. under the minimum amount of radioactive material necessary for a chain reaction
  4. 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
  5. fuels created from fissionable material

5 True/False questions

  3. Fuel Rodssub-critical masses of fissionable U-235 or plutonium


  4. Geothermal Energyelectrical energy produced by the flow of water


  5. Law of Conservation of EnergyEnergy can not be created or destroyed, but it can change form
