Fluoride Thorium Reactors
The liquid fluoride thorium reactor is a supply of nuclear fuel in the form of a molten salt
mixture. A Molten Salt Reactors, such as Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor produces energy using a liquid nuclear fuel, not a solid fuel. MSRs also use a coolant that remains liquid at atmospheric pressure.
LFTRs are designed to convert Thorium, an inexpensive and abundant material, into Uranium-233 which can then undergo nuclear fission. Other types of MSR can use spent uranium, depleted uranium, or plutonium, eliminating nuclear waste from solid-fueled reactors. Most safety concerns of LWRs are from using water coolant; LFTR is a molten salt reactor (uses special salt…

Every year Ontario faces harsh winters that bring copious amounts of snowfall and ice. This results in more frequent occurrences of traffic accidents due to the lack of traction on the icy roads. This problem is dealt with by lining the streets with road salt,…
Electrolyte and Plasma Responses After Ingestion of Pickle Juice in Hydrated Females
Every physically active person knows how it feels to be in the middle of a sporting event or workout and suddenly experience a muscle cramp. These cramps are inhibiting and painful, as well as cause a decrease in performance. Exercise-associated muscle cramps, or EAMC, are defined as skeletal muscle cramps that occur during or directly after exercise (Miller et…

Substitutes for salt - the best salt with which to control BP
Salt is an important substance that is essential for taste. Regardless of whether you made a vegetarian or vegetative or non-vegetarian food, the full flavor of these dishes depends on salt. When you get tired of the sun and want to get your energy back again, you can treat it with salt water. But adding more salt to the diet or consuming them more is not right for your…
In Ian Urbina’s article, the connection between passwords utilized by people and how they can hold deep meanings delving into a persons’ emotions, thought processes, personal past experiences, and the very essence of who they are, is explored at length. Urbina runs a study to create his thesis that people primarily utilize “Keepsake” passwords through collecting people’s passwords (either current or past) and why those specific passwords were chosen, as a proof that there is a deep connection…
It is a form of salt that is also called Chile saltpeter. It looks just like regular, old table salt. It comes in small, clearish white grains. After eating this, a pill might want to be taken for a pounding migraine. This chemical causes excruciating migraines. Not only does it cause migraines, but it raises the risk of getting cancer. So, it is a two for one deal. You get two types of sickness, for the price of one hot dog. The companies have to put this in because it increases the shelf life,…
What is audio to text transcription? Why is audio transcription a powerful tool for audio file conversion?
Description: In this technological world, now it is possible to transcribe audio to text. When audio files are in digital format you need to convert them for a backup and data preservation.
Audio recording can archive reliable information and is immensely valuable to companies and organizations. But then, the digital version is vulnerable to unpredictable factors and distortions. You…
Have you ever had a refreshing bath with bubbles or bath salts? What if you could use chemistry to create a bath-time treat that incorporated both fizzing bubbles and soothing salts? Such a combination does exist, and it's called a bath bomb. If you have never experienced one, these "bombs" become fizzy when they touch the water. Why? It is due to a chemical reaction taking place between different ingredients within the…
The results showed that the bioluminescent bacteria was not affected by sodium chloride. They can actually survive in both fresh and saltwater. I discovered that the light intensity of the bacteria stayed between 0.02 and 0.07 lux. sodium chloride seemed to not affect the light intensity at all. In my background research I discovered that pollutants decrease light intensity of the bacteria. To learn more I use sodium chloride as my toxic pollutants and tested its effect on light intensity.…
