BY: BRYCE WOMACK, TYLER YOUNG, JOSH TEETER-JONES

HOW DOES THE TECHNOLOGY WORK?

A nuclear reactor creats heat the is used to make steam. The steam turns a turbine connected to an electro magnit, called a generator the generator produces electricity

where does the energy source come from, is it renewable or nonrenewable?

It is produced by the sun and other stars an it makes light an heat through nuclear reactions. It is nonrenewable energy source

Is it costly?

Yes, It keeps adding up through the years

What impact does it have on the enviroment?

Yes thre are several and they are associated with power electricity technologies

Advantiges and disadvantiges about nuclear energy

The andvantiges about nuclear energy is a third of the energyn that comes from europe is nuclear energy this implies that emit 700 million tons of co2 an other contaminants generated from burning fossil fuel. The other andvantige is the waste genarated are much less radioactive

The disadvantiges about nuclear energy is dissposible of nuclear waste is very expensive and it is very radioactive it as to be exposed to not polute the earth. It takes a long time to disposse of.

Two very important radioactive scientist

Fredrick Soddy discoverd that natrauly radioactive elements had a number of diffrent isotopes. James Cadwick discoverd the neutron
