How a Nuclear Power Plant Works
There are a few different isotopes of uranium used in a nuclear reactor. The main reactant in a nuclear power plant is uranium 235. There is also uranium 238, which is naturally found in ore deposits, before a large portion is removed in the refinement process. A nuclear power plant makes energy by making heat to boil water. This process then turns a turbine, which turns a generator, which make electricity. When the water in the cooling tower cools the water inside the reactor some of it boils off, leading to the consumption of 600 gallon per MWH. When a nuclear reactor goes critical and back ups systems fail, the reactor goes into meltdown. The reaction get out of control inside the reactor, and it get so hot the control reds melt.
Risk and Benefits
The nuclear reactor could melt down and emit dangerous radiation. That radiation could then make you a super hero like the hulk.
