Transcript of Nuclear Energy

Uses and Impacts
Hiroshima, part of the Manhattan Project
How It's Made
Uranium atoms are split by neutrons
Process is called "nuclear fission"
Energy is released to boil water into steam
The steam powers the turbine to force coils of wire to interact with a magnetic field
*ENERGY IS PRODUCED!!*
POWER PLANTS
100 US nuclear power plants are in opperation and most of them have "light-water" reactors. The term "light-water" comes from the fa

Historian
Nuclear Energy hasn't always been the best for our world.
Many regulations have been put in place at the power plants
People have very differed opinions on nuclear power.
The fact that it is radioactive and very deadly makes it a very controversial source of energy
Nuclear energy is much cheaper then other sources of energy.
