Transcript of Nuclear fission

URANIUM Difference between boiling water reactor and pressurized water reactor BWR PWR - two water loops
- first water loop boils and flows through the steam turbine Boiled water reactor WHAT IS NUCLEAR FISSION ? Nuclear power an alternative power source that uses the nuclear fission of uranium to create heat and, thereby, through a heat transfer mechanism and turbines, create electricity. - three water loops
- first water loop doesn't boil
so the water can work better as a moderater There is no safety way to store the nuclear wast(Radioactive materials take thousands of years to decay).

Emit radiations that are highly dangerous for living organisms. Can produce more electricity or energy when compared with other energy resources.

Less fuel(Uranium).

No air or water population
(only transport)

No greenhouse gas Disadvantages Advantages NUCLEAR POWER WORLDS LOCATION Fukushima Daini

Fukushima 2011 Nuclear Accidents HOW TO TO DISPOSE ATOMIC WASTE There a two types of waste

Low-level waste like contaminated clothing ,equipments and tools, aren't really dangerous.
Most of them can be recycled

High level waste consists of fuel rods. Mostly they get stored in tunnels or in salt domes for a million years. WORLDS ENERGY SOURCES REACTORS NUCLEAR REACTORS ON EARTH
