5 Matching questions

  1. Photovoltaic Cells
  2. Law of Conservation of Energy
  3. Atomic Bomb
  4. Wind Turbine
  5. Chain Reaction
  1. a a chemical reaction or other process in which the products themselves promote or spread the reaction, which under certain conditions may accelerate dramatically.
  2. b A turbine powered by wind mills, this is an alternative or renewable energy source
  3. c solar cells which convert the sun's energy into electrical energy
  4. d 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. e Energy can not be created or destroyed, but it can change form

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. a synthesized (man made) unstable, fissionable material
  4. The ability to do Work
  5. A substance from which energy is formed

5 True/False questions

  1. Geothermal Energyenergy produced by heat from the earth

          

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

          

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

          

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

          

  5. Ionizing RadiationRadiation 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
