5 Matching questions

  1. Organic Fuel
  2. Chain Reaction
  3. Generator
  4. Containment Building
  5. Fossil Fuel
  1. a the part in a light water plant design where the reactor vessel, steam generator and back-up cooling water are held
  2. b a device that converts the kinetic energy captured by a turbine into electrical enrgy
  3. c a chemical reaction or other process in which the products themselves promote or spread the reaction, which under certain conditions may accelerate dramatically.
  4. d Nonrenewable energy resource formed from the remains of organisms that lived long ago. i.e oil, coal, natural gas
  5. e Fuels that contain Carbon. Fossil Fuels and Biomass Fuels are both organic

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. tower in which the extremely high temperature steam (from the light water plant design) is cooled and condensed back into water to be reused
  2. an accident in a nuclear reactor where the fuel overheats and melts the reactor core
  3. 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
  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. 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 True/False questions

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


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


  3. Hydroelectric Energyelectrical energy produced by the flow of water


  4. Uranium 235an unstable, fissionable isotope of uranium


  5. Uranium 238a stable non-fissionable isotope of uranium
