Solar and Nuclear Energy

Renewable Energy

Solar Energy

the sun has produced energy for a billion years inside the sun there is gas which helps the fire. gases flues the sun, a long time from it will explode. When converting Thermal energy it can be used to heat things up. The sun powers the solar are extra energy. There are two main limitations of solar energy .


the amount of sunlight that arrives at the earth surfaces is not constant the amount of sunlight varies depending on location.


because the sun doesn't deliver that much energy to any one time ,a large surfaces area is required to collect the energy at a useful rate.


Energy is used every second we use it on stoves, phones, TV, industrial processes, fiber optics, copy machine, telescopes , sense pollution

The air that comes out turns into waste energy.

nuclear energy

In nuclear fission, atoms are split apart, which releases energy. Uranium is the fuel most widely used by nuclear plants for nuclear fission. Uranium is considered to be a nonrenewable energy source, even though it is a common metal found in rocks worldwide. During nuclear fission, a neutron hits a uranium atom and splits it, releasing a large amount of energy in the form of heat and radiation. Most power plants, including nuclear power plants, use heat to produce electricity. The heat produced during nuclear fission in the reactor core is used to boil water into steam, which turns the turbine blades.
