How does this source affect us? Is there any safety hazards?
Power Plant Selection
What is the process generating electricity from nuclear?
Power Plant Selection
What energy transformation occur in this process?
Power Plan Selection
Location of power plant and will it affect the environment or residence?
What are the positive and negative aspects of this source?
How much would it cost to construct a power plant that would supply enough energy for the city of your size?
A town the size of ours, Mayberry has 12,800 houses. Based on a power research in Toronto, studies shows that to supply 12,800 houses you need 97 megawatts of power. And the cost of 97 nuclear megawatts is 184,300$/hr which is enough to supply our city.
Is this method affordable?
This is pretty affordable plant because it costs a lot of money but at the same time it generates a lot energy and is one of the smallest costing plants in it's areas at 184,300$/hr, but in contrast it isn't very eco-friendly
What are the top 5 countries that currently use this source? What percent of their energy consumption comes from this source?

Is this energy source renewable?
There are many positive aspects and a few negative aspects to this source;

No, it is not renewable. Though, since we have a giant supply of uranium it will take a long time until it runs out.

Nuclear power emits a very low amount of carbon dioxide
Can give a lot of energy in just one power plant
Low operating costs
What are the positive and negative aspects of this source?
There are many positive aspects and a few negative aspects to this source;


Is practically impossible to make a nuclear power plant with 100% security
Takes a long time to build
Little waste is emitted, but the waste that is emitted lasts many years

The city of Mayberry needs a new power plant. It has approximately 12,800 residents. It has a lot of smog that is covering the city. Residents worry the smog will affect their health and wildlife habitats. A local resident found a huge amount of the element, Uranium. As the city considers it's options for new power plants, the residents voiced their main concern; reducing the amount of carbon-dioxide in their city.
1.United States = 19.0% of their energy is from nuclear sources

2.France = 74.85% of their energy is from nuclear sources

3.Japan = 18.1% of their energy is from nuclear sources

4.Russia = 17.8% of their energy is from nuclear sources

5.South Korea = 30.4% of their energy is from nuclear sources
What have we decided...
but why....?
This source does not affect us that much. As the power plant is quite far away from the city and homes it will barely affect us. There is one hazard, radiation. In some rare cases, nuclear energy gives off radiation, and if they do and an organism is near the power plant, it can be lethal in just a matter of 2-3 minutes.
The power plants location would be next to the river that surrounds the city and near the uranium founded by the local resident. Mayberry is a perfect place to build a nuclear power plant. The river that surrounds the city will dispose all the heat. The plant rarely releases carbon dioxide and when it does it stays for a while.
