What are the advantages of nuclear energy?
advantages of nuclear energy are as follows:
Less uranium is needed to produce the same amount of energy as coal or oil, which lowers the cost of producing the same amount of energy.
When a nuclear power plant is functioning properly, it can run uninterrupted for up to 540 days.
3. No Greenhouse Gases
While nuclear energy does have some emissions, the plant itself does not give off greenhouse gasses.
The following questions are about the nuclear reactor of a power plant.
a) Which isotope of uranium produces the energy in the fuel rods?
b) Will the fuel rods last forever?
c) Is the energy produced by nuclear fission or nuclear fusion?
d) What is the purpose of using the graphite moderator ?
e) What is the function of boron rods in the nuclear reactor?
f) Why is liquid sodium (or carbon dioxide gas) pumped through the reactor?
