  • What Are The Arguments Against Nuclear Energy

    The “core” of the nuclear reactor houses uranium, and is where nuclear fission takes place (“How Nuclear Power Works”). Nuclear fission is when an atom is split apart, and it creates massive amounts of energy. This energy is what heats the water and turns the turbine. Uranium is found in its natural state in the earth’s crust, where it is mined. Many arguments against nuclear power claim that the energy is…

  • Positive Effects Of The Manhattan Project

    Positive Effects of the Manhattan Project The United States is estimated to spend between six hundred and twenty billion dollars to six hundred and sixty one billion dollars on nuclear weapons over the next decade (PloughShares). The start of nuclear weaponry began when the test bomb, Gadget, was detonated on July 16, 1945 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. The Manhattan Project was a secret operation which the United States perfected the atomic bomb. Many people did not know about the Manhattan…

  • The Importance Of Nature By Marie Curie

    1 The Nature All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child. – Marie Curie (1867-1934), the Polish-French physicist chemist famous for her pioneering research on radioactivity. She was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes in physics and chemistry. All that is beautiful, delightful and affable in this world, the silence of the night, the loveliness of the morning, the beauty of the day, the melody of the breeze, the fragrances of the flower, the precious…

  • How Did The Manhattan Project Affect The Allies's Victory?

    One of the facilities was located in Oak Ridge, Tennessee (“Key”). The other two were located in Hanford, Washington and Los Alamos, New Mexico (“Key”). Oak Ridge was the location that provided scientists with the uranium element (“Key”). As stated by Albert Einstein, uranium was one of the critical ingredients in the formation of the atomic bomb. Plutonium was produced for new weapons, at the Hanford, Washington location (“Key”). With all the products manufactured at different locations,…

  • Nuclear Energy: Pros And Cons

    is its low waste. A single gram of uranium provides as much energy as a ton of coal or oil. Respectively, nuclear waste is around a million time less than the waste from fossil fuels. In Sweden and the United States, the nuclear waste is just stored somewhere safe, but the rest of the world reuses the waste to filter out the 3% of radioactive remains and place them in glass for permanent and safe storage. The left over 97%, which is mostly plutonium and uranium, is recycled into fuel to create…

  • The Importance Of Mathematical Predictionss For Hydrogen

    – equation (2 gives info on location of electron in terms of probability density - wave functions are called orbitals – [pic], where E is energy, e2 is electric potential, r is orbital radius and h is Planck’s constant 1925 Wolfgang Pauli – each orbital has only 2 electrons is now explained due to direction of spin of electrons. Spinning electrons create magnetic field. Only 2 electrons of opposite spin in an orbital referred to as Pauli exclusion principle Hund’s rule – half fill…

  • Persuasive Essay Against Nuclear Energy

    Nuclear energy should not be a resource after what happened in Japan on 11 march 2011. That day a Nuclear power plantation has been destroyed by an earthquake in Japan. It causes radiation all around Japan and many people died. It doesn't matter if the disaster happened on Japan just because Japan is known for tsunami, earthquake, storm surge, and floods.This global warming situation is out of control for everybody so this can happen anywhere and if any natural causes hit any nuclear power plant…

  • Pros And Cons Of Geothermal Energy

    Geothermal Power Anna,Caroline,Rebekah Geothermal power is a form of renewable energy that taps into the heat from earth’s core. Geothermal energy uses earth’s natural heat to generate electricity and can be generated twenty-four hours a day,unlike other renewable engines. Geothermal power is limited to most areas near tectonic plate boundaries. Alternative energy geothermal is a product from earth’s original formation. It comes from radioactive decay of minerals due to volcanic…

  • What Exactly Was Hitler's The Manhattan Project?

    to mind when you saw this, was… What exactly is the Manhattan project? Well the Manhattan project dates all the way back in 1938, when many people feared that Hitler would build an atomic bomb after word spread that German scientist had split the uranium atom (fission). However, one of Hitler’s mistakes was his persecution of Jewish scientists. This persecution resulted in numerous scientists seeking asylum in the United States. One such scientist was Albert Einstein. Einstein, abandoning his…

  • The Titanic: The Reasons Of Plastic Failure

    When the Titanic collided with the iceberg, the hull steel and the rivets failed because the hull body and rivets were made by brittle materials. At extremely high speeds, the brittle fracture caused plastic deformation. The reasons of plastic deformation include low temperature, poor properties of the hull steel, and high sulphur content of the material. When the Titanic disaster happened, each of these three factors was present: The water temperature was very low, the Titanic was travelling at…
