Transcript of Nuclear `````````````````Energy

What is nuclear power?
Nuclear energy is energy released from a reaction in which atomic nuclei interact to form new nuclei that have a lower combined mass.
Nuclear Energy
Everyday Life
Examples of Nuclear!!
Nuclear can be like a bomb, inside the nuclear bomb there are cells.
*How Nuclear Energy Effects Us*
Nuclear energy helps us in life more then
you think . Some examples of nuclear energy we use in everyday life is ....
Objects like light/electricity.
* If there ever was a nuclear explosion there wouldn't be any humans or animals left in that part that the explosion took place.
*Nuclear Power Plants puts radioactive waste into the country or city that the nuclear power plant is located.
*Breathing in nuclear energy can causes severe damages to your body.
The temperature of Nuclear energy can range from 700 degrees Celsius...
This is the nucler power plant in tranoble russia
This is the nuclear plant in in japan.
Fun Facts
The cells are called:
Nuclear envelope-
Outer membrane
Inner membrane
Nuclear Pore
Nuclear power plants generate about 20% of U.S. electricity.
Every 18 to 24 months, a power plant must shut down to remove its spent uranium fuel, which becomes radioactive waste.
Nuclear fact's , ex.
~How do we use nuclear energy~
*11 percent of the worlds electricity is powered by nuclear energy.
Nuclear energy
This is an example of the nuclear power plant in japan.
*This is how much more nuclear energy we have used from 1971 to 2013
Nuclear energy helps us in life more than
you think . Some examples of nuclear energy we use in everyday life is ....
Objects like light/electricity.
Half of the worlds electricity is powered by old nuclear bomb"s.

Nuclear bomb facts
Facts about nuclear waste
Nuclear energy is the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom. It can be used to produce electricity. But, before it can used, it must be released. The enormous energy that is stored in the bonds that hold atoms together can be released by two processes: nuclear fission or nuclear fusion. In nuclear fission, atoms are split to form smaller atoms, releasing energy whereas in nuclear fusion atoms are combined or fused to form a larger atom. This is how the sun produces energy.
Nuclear waste is produced at every stage of the nuclear fuel cycle, from uranium mining and enrichment, to reactor operation and the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. Much of this nuclear waste will remain hazardous for hundreds of thousands of years, leaving a poisonous legacy to future generations.
Nuclear energy
The nuclear power industry has created thousands of tons of deadly nuclear
waste, and it could soon be traveling through your community! Along with
its allies in the federal government, the nuclear industry is pushing Congress
to establish a nuclear waste dump at Yucca Mountain, Nevada. If they are
successful, 100,000 shipments of high-level radioactive waste, now located
at 77 sites across the country, will be transported through 43 states. Fifty
million Americans will be put at risk over 25 years, as waste moves past
homes, workplaces, recreational areas, schools, and hospitals. The map
below shows the routes that would most likely be used to transport the
1. The nuclear industry still has no solution to the 'waste problem', so cannot expect support for construction of new plants until this is remedied.
2. The transportation of this waste poses an unacceptable risk to people and the environment.
3. Plutonium is the most dangerous material in the world.
