5 Matching questions

  1. Low Level Radioactive Waste
  2. Hydroelectric Energy
  3. Fusion
  4. Reactor Vessel
  5. Organic Fuel
  1. a Fuels that contain Carbon. Fossil Fuels and Biomass Fuels are both organic
  2. b Gives off low levels of ionizing radiation for a shorter time period, requires safe storage for 100 to 500 yrs
  3. c electrical energy produced by the flow of water
  4. d the process by which the nuclei of small atoms combine to form a new, more massive nucleus; the process releases energy
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. Nonrenewable energy resource formed from the remains of organisms that lived long ago. i.e oil, coal, natural gas
  2. Waste which gives off high amounts of ionizing radiation for a short time and, lower amounts for a long time, requires safe storage for 240,000 yrs
  3. Device that converts mechanical energy into electricity by spinning a copper coil inside a magnetic field
  4. the process by which the nucleus of a heavy atom splits into two or more fragments; the process releases nuetrons and energy
  5. an unstable, fissionable isotope of uranium

5 True/False questions

  1. Fuel RodsA substance from which energy is formed


  2. Ionizing Radiationa chemical reaction or other process in which the products themselves promote or spread the reaction, which under certain conditions may accelerate dramatically.


  3. Subcritical Massunder the minimum amount of radioactive material necessary for a chain reaction


  4. Atomic BombA 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. Critical Massunder the minimum amount of radioactive material necessary for a chain reaction
