5 Matching questions

  1. Uranium 238
  2. Atomic Bomb
  3. Biomass Fuel
  4. Organic Fuel
  5. Generator
  1. a Plant material, manure or any other organic matter that is used as an energy source
  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 Fuels that contain Carbon. Fossil Fuels and Biomass Fuels are both organic
  4. d a stable non-fissionable isotope of uranium
  5. e a device that converts the kinetic energy captured by a turbine into electrical enrgy

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Nonrenewable energy resource formed from the remains of organisms that lived long ago. i.e oil, coal, natural gas
  2. Device that converts mechanical energy into electricity by spinning a copper coil inside a magnetic field
  3. the process by which the nucleus of a heavy atom splits into two or more fragments; the process releases nuetrons and energy
  4. the minimum amount of radioactive material necessary for a chain reaction
  5. tower in which the extremely high temperature steam (from the light water plant design) is cooled and condensed back into water to be reused

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. Uranium 235an unstable, fissionable isotope of uranium

          

  3. Nuclear Fuelfuels created from fissionable material

          

  4. Reactor VesselThe 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. Wind TurbineDevice that converts mechanical energy into electricity by spinning a copper coil inside a magnetic field
