  • Marie Salomea Sklodowska's Impact On The World

    The first woman to win a noble prize for not just Physics but Chemistry too, would have a dramatic impact on the world as we know it today. Marie Salomea Sklodowska was a polish scientist, born on November 7, 1867 in Warsaw, Congress Kingdom of Poland, Russia. Marie’s mother, Bronislawa, and father, Wladyslaw, were both teachers and wanted Marie to have an education. During school when Marie became fascinated with the art of science Marie’s parents were extremely encouraging and supportive.…

  • Nuclear Energy Pros And Cons

    Nuclear energy is the energy released during nuclear fission or fusion. Nuclear fission is a nuclear reaction in which a heavy nucleus splits spontaneously or on impact with another particle, with the release of energy. Nuclear fusion on the contrary is the exact opposite; it gathers energy from the heavy nucleus combining with the shot particle. These two combined produce a lot of energy that is used all over the world on a daily basis. Nuclear power has proved to serve a huge part of our…

  • Pros And Cons Of Using Static Electricity

    In our time and age, many inventions depend on the use of static electricity such as printers, photocopiers , pollutant removers and even spray painting. Now imagine how our world would differ if we did not have the implementation of static electricity in inventions such as photo copiers or printers. These simple inventions solve big problems. What is static electricity? How do printers work? Why do we need Printers? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the use of printers? These factors…

  • Nuclear Fission Benefits

    Two benefits of nuclear fission technology for society are that significantly fewer amounts of greenhouses gases are being released into the atmosphere, compared to fossil fuels. This results in a slowed rate of pollution and global warming. Another benefit is that power created through nuclear fission is immense and is able to meet the demands of large and industrial cities as well as the suburban towns too. Also the energy is quick to create too, which means that immense amount of energy can…

  • Atomic Bomb Effects

    On August 6th, 1945, the United States dropped the first atomic bomb in Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, another bomb dropped on Nagasaki. Today, these events are known as the end of World War II, and also the only time that the military used nuclear bombs in wartime. The bombs not only impacted world history, but also caused the American public to feel uncertainty regarding the implications of nuclear physics and radiation and how using this scientific knowledge impacts daily life. In 1937,…

  • 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…

  • Nuclear Fission Vs. Nuclear Fusion: What's The Difference?

    Atomic Energy Introduction: Scientists are able to address human cancer by using Atomic-energy. Atomic-energy or higher referred to as Nuclear-energy is the energy inside of the nucleus of an atom. Nuclear-energy is the type of energy that is regularly released during the process of nuclear-fission or nuclear-fusion and is typically used for electricity. Atoms are microscopic particles that make up every and each object inside the universe. There is gigantic energy inside the bonds that can…

  • Yucca Mountain Case Study

    called uranium fuel. This fuel consists of solid ceramic pellets which produces electricity. This process occurs through fission. The Nuclear power plants acquire the needed heat to create steam. The process that occurs is physical. The process described, called Fission, involves splitting the uranium atoms in into a nuclear reactor. The first nuclear reactors ever used on this earth functioned naturally. This occurred in a uranium deposit. Uranium deposits are condensed areas of uranium within…

  • Nuclear Energy Program

    fission. Fission occurs when radioactive elements split into smaller elements with intermediate mass. In the case of uranium-235, with each decay process, a neutron is released (Sarquis). With these extra neutrons, a new reaction can take place with another uranium-235 atom and continue as such, causing a chain reaction. This process releases a lot of energy - 215 MeV, to be exact (“Uranium-235 Fission”) - and this energy can be harnessed to produce heat, nuclear reactors use this. A nuclear…

  • Nuclear Pros And Cons

    Nuclear power is used worldwide, but is put under the question as to if it is more beneficial than harmful. Nuclear power is the process of atomic reactions that produce a form of energy, in the United States providing about twenty percent of the country 's electricity. The controversy that pertains nuclear power use has been gradually escalating because some may believe that nuclear power plants are more harmful than safe and some may disagree of the matter. Nuclear power is questionable due to…
