Anything that uses electricity is going to be using some nuclear, unless you are in an isolated place that runs its own electric system without national or regional connections. In the US nuclear is about 20 percent, and world-wide the average is about 16 percent, though of course many countries have no nuclear. But if you live in the US, Canada, or Europe you are certainly using some nuclear power (unless isolated as above). In Australia or New Zealand though, zero nuclear.

Nuclear energy pros and cons for kids?

Nuclear energy ! pros- causes almost no green house gasses, & pollution. cons-can cause melt downs.

What do nuclear power companies do?

They generate electrical energy from nuclear energy, and then distribute it through wires to your house, where it can be used to run your lights, your TV, and your electric can-opener.

What happens to white objects when heat and light energy is transferred to it?

White objects reflect heat and light energy. For example if you live in a white house, the heat and light energy bounces off the surface of the house so you would feel cool.

Does nuclear energy have green house effects?

No- Because Nuclear energy produces A LOT of radiation. Some bad chemicals may enter the earths athmoshere. but that don't have a large affect on the athmosphere.

How do you reduce the pollution in the house?

How do power plants send nuclear energy to houses?

Nuclear energy is used to boil water into steam, just like burning coal does. The steam turns giant turbine generators which make electricity and the electricity is sent to your house with wires.

Can uranium heat buildings?

indirectly, if a house gets its energy from nuclear power plant, but not in the same way as burning coal or oil- it's much to dangerous to have a little nuclear reactor in the basement.

What problems could a homeowner face in a house powered entirely by photovoltaics?

Not sure if this is right but it MAY help. 2 problems or concerns a homeowner can face in a house powered entirely by photovoltaics are: 1) If there is too much light, it may start a fire in the house. 2) If there is no light, there will be no energy in the house. REMEMBER, this MAY not be right correct because I had the same question and I had to think it through and this is what i came up with.

What are the energy transformations nuclear energy goes through to become household electricity?

Nuclear energy creates heat in the fuel, which is transferred to the reactor coolant and then used to produce steam. This is used in a steam turbine to provide mechanical energy which then produces electrical energy in the generator. This is then transferred in high voltage grid lines and transformed down to your house voltage in a local transformer

How is water harness?

By using hydro powered stations that can turn water into energy to power your house. It also is harnessed by water turbines to filter the unwanted in the water.

How is nuclear energy a good thing?

Advantages include:There are no green-house gasses released, meaning nuclear energy has no effect on the enhanced green-house effect (global warming)Nuclear energy is extremely efficient and produces a large amount of electricity.Nuclear energy does not require fossil fuels, such as coal or oil, to be burnt, meaning that nuclear energy can continue to be produced when fossil fuels become even more scarce than they are as of now.Nuclear energy is dependable and will generate power quietly in a very small footprint.A piece of fuel the size of a dime is all that is needed to power an aircraft carrier for twenty plus years. The waste element can be very tiny.There are far fewer mining accidents in Uranium mines. The over environmental affect of mining is reducedIn terms of overall safety, even when taking Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and the Japanese disaster, nuclear has a better record of safety than fossil fuel alternatives.

Examples of energy transfer?

1. Ball Bouncing Bouncing a ball is movement which is kinetic energy. When the ball hits the ground there is "force" That pulls it back up… Which is called Potential energy. Kinetic>Potential 2. Door Bell A door bell is powered by Electricity and when you press it, it makes a loud noise. So that is Electric energy transferred into Sound energy. Electric>Sound 1. Electric outlet. An Electric outlet powered a lot of stuff in my House. One example I thought of was a lamp. The Electric goes in the light bulb in my lamp and then transfers into light energy Electric>Light energy 2. Windmill The windmill is powered by Wind energy… Which is then turned into Electric energy. Wind energy>Electric

Can you heat your house with solar heated water?

No you cant but you can heat your house with a solar powered radiator.

How is wind energy sent to your house?

It isn't. Do you mean how is wind energy distributed? There is no such thing as wind energy or nuclear energy or coal energy. energy is energy, there is no possible way to distinguish where it came from. The energy from a wind turbine is converted to electricity, and put into the electric grid with the energy from all other sources. From the grid it goes to houses and factories as needed.
