  • Fukushima Daiichi Research Paper

    the people who inhabit it. Earthquakes have the ability the level buildings to ground and in some cases in can cause a tsunami. In Japan there is a nuclear power plant in Fukushima Daiichi that was unable to withstand the strength of the natural occurrences and caused a meltdown of its core reactors. The goal of this paper is to inform readers of a general history…

  • Compare And Contrast Solar And Nuclear Energy

    Both sources of power have a cost. The largest nuclear power plant in the world is Tokyo Electric Power Co's (TEPCO) or also know as the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa Nuclear Power Plant. The largest solar power farm in the world is the Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park, Spain. Nuclear power and solar power are both a power source. They have many similarities and differences, but solar power is is still a better source. Both Nuclear and Solar are power sources for humans, but solar power is more convenient that…

  • Negative Consequences Of Lead/Acid Battery

    The available technology points toward the use of lead/acid batteries to supply the power for ZEVs. The negative consequences associated with lead/acid batteries are numerous. For example, lead/acid batteries contain a large amount of lead. When the life of the battery is lost, the disposal of the lead within the battery must be dealt with appropriately. An analysis by researchers at Carnegie-Mellon found that the mass production of electric cars using lead/acid battery packs would exponentially…

  • Weakness Of Green Energy

    I’ve seen everything from a tree with solar and wind generating leaves to vibrating ribbons (Windbelt), solar panels that use more than just a couple wavelengths of sunlight, generators that run off of Ocean waves, and potential concepts like extracting ionized energy out of the ionosphere such as Tesla proposed, Thorium salt breeder reactors like those that were built before nuclear went Uranium in order to be weaponized, and Fusion reactors, which is still in the concept phase. Personally I…

  • Positive Aspects Of Nuclear Energy

    s nuclear power worth the risk? Are the positive aspects of nuclear power worth the possible negative outcomes? To use nuclear power, Uranium atoms must split, which is called fission. The heat produced from fission is what makes the water turn into steam. The steam is what makes the turbines turn and the turbines are used to generate electricity. Do the positive effects of using nuclear power out weight the possibility of building nuclear weapons? I think with government regulations and…

  • The Benefits Of Alternative Energy

    Current non-renewable power sources include coal power, natural gas power, and other fossil fuels. These fuel sources create heat, which boils water and makes steam. This steam turns a turbine, which turns a generator, which makes electricity. The advantage to using these sources is that they are inexpensive. The disadvantage is that they are dirty sources of power. They all pollute in one way or another. The fossil fuels are not renewable, meaning they will run out someday. Nuclear power makes…

  • The Challenges Of Energy Security

    security is linked with the national security. Primary reason is that the whole economy of country is largely dependent on the energy resources, it is for the reason that large infrastructure runs on energy and this is almost irreversible. If the economy is hampered the national security is directly under a real threat obviously. Energy raw material or fossil fuels are not evenly distributed globally that makes national security of any country with such reserves of natural fossil fuels under a…

  • Cons Of Nuclear Energy

    For many years the argument of nuclear energy’s positive and negative effects have been fought between scientists and politicians a like. Is it truly cost effective? Is it more harmful than burning natural gases? Is it a more dangerous process to create it? These and many other questions have gone back and forth for those who support nuclear energy and those who are opposed to it. When deciding on the future of our sustainable energy sources it is best to weigh the pros and the cons of nuclear…

  • Safety-Critical Inventions

    In the ancient times people used simple tools to operate and secure their lives, but as the world evolved they have invented improved tools to insure longer and better life. Some of these tools are electricity, water pipe systems and others concern critical issues, such as health and nuclear energy. Inventions such as the defibrillator, heart-lung machines and even robotics, as well as nuclear reactors are also known as safety-critical systems. They are increasingly computer-based systems, but…
