  4. Containment Building
  5. Plutonium
  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 Reactor using fuel/control rods to create heat, used to make steam to eventually spin a turbine
  3. c a synthesized (man made) unstable, fissionable material
  4. d solar cells which convert the sun's energy into electrical energy
  5. e the process by which the nucleus of a heavy atom splits into two or more fragments; the process releases nuetrons and energy

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A substance from which energy is formed
  2. 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. energy produced by heat from the earth
  4. Gives off low levels of ionizing radiation for a shorter time period, requires safe storage for 100 to 500 yrs
  5. Device that converts mechanical energy into electricity by spinning a copper coil inside a magnetic field

5 True/False questions

  1. Law of Conservation of Energyenergy produced by heat from the earth


  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. Control RodsNeutron absorbing material that slows the chain reaction


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


  5. Nuclear Fuelfuels created from fissionable material
