# How many watts of power does a nuclear power station produce?

T. Who the heck really cares

### What is the energy of a radio station that broadcasts at 1120 kilohertz on the Am?

The frequency on the radio dial doesn't tell us the power the station is using to transmit. There may be an AM radio station at any spot on the dial that is transmitting at any power level between, maybe, 10 watts and 50,000 watts. That decision is made when the radio station applies for its license, and the license to operate is granted.

### What is the difference between nuclear power and nuclear energy?

Nuclear energy is a quantity of energy measured in Joules, so it has the same units as mechanical or electrical energy. Nuclear power is the rate of production of nuclear energy, so it is Joules per second, or Watts, as other forms of power are. Remember: power = energy flow per second. This applies to all forms of energy.

### What are the units for Nuclear Power?

The fundamental unit for all types of energy is the Joule, and this is related to power as 1 Watt = 1 Joule/sec. Output power of a nuclear reactor is measured in Watts, or for large power reactors in MegaWatts, and would typically be around 3000 MW. That is the thermal output of the reactor, when coupled to a Rankine cycle steam/generating plant this would produce about 1000 MW electrical.

### How much power is produced by 7 volts?

Electric power = Volts X Amps, so 7 vols at 1 Amp will produce 7 watts 7 volts at 5 amps will produce 35 watts 7 volts at 15 amps will produce 105 watts and so on. Technically, there is not enough information (just volts) to answer your question but if you know the Amps, you can now figure the answer yourself.

### Do nuclear reactions produce huge amount of energy?

Not always no. If you remember the old "trimphone dials" for example - or the glow-in-the-dark fishing floats which consist of a small glass tube, these contain tritium gas. The disintigration of this yields light. The ouput of energy however is anything but huge - typically in the order of attowatts for even a large tube. On the other hand, a nuclear power station or bomb can yield power levels in billions and trillions of…

### How many watts can a wind turbine produce in a day and how many houses can that power?

Watts measure power, which is how fast energy is produced or consumed. There are many wind turbines around that are rated at 3 Megawatts, or 3 million watts. Obviously when there is no wind they don't produce power and an alternative energy source is needed as a backup. 3 Megawatts is enough to feed 1000 houses in Europe.

### How can you know ratting of pt instold at sub station?

Typically the power rating of a sub-station is in Watts. A standard transformer may be 55kva or 55,000 volt amps. Volt amps is the formula for Watts. (V times A equals Watts) Standard home usage is in the neighborhood of 3kw per hour. So a sub-station with three 55kva tranformers might handle 60 homes.

### Which voltage under-cabinet lighting of the 25 inch puck-type style would produce more heat 12 volt - low voltage - or 120 volt - if both bulbs are rated at 20 watts?

Let's retool this one. Watts is volts times amps. Check. Amps produce heat and not the volts. Now hold on just a minute there, partner. Heat is power. Power is watts. It's volts times amps. Power = Watts = Heat. So "amps produce heat and not the volts" is misleading. Amps and volts together produce heat, produce watts, produce power. It's true that more amps through a given resistance produces more heat than less amps…

### 25 amps is how many kw?

Amps is a measurement of current. Watts (or kilowatts) is a measure of power. To get the power from the current, you have to know the electrical potential or volts used to produce the current. Amps Ã— Volts = Watts (or Current Ã— Electrical Potential = Power). Incidentally, a kilowatt is 1000 watts, so you'll have to divide your answer by 1000. e.g. if your volts is 40, then 25 amps Ã— 40 volts =…

### How many watts does it take to produce electricity?

"Producing" electricity is just converting energy from some other form into electrical energy To produce some amount of electrical power, it takes exactly the same amount of power from some other source, plus some more to make up for the losses in the process of converting it. If you want to generate 100 watts of electrical power, then you have to burn enough coal, oil, wood, or old rags to produce heat at the rate…

### Can one power station generate a lots of power?

Yes, in fact, the average power station produces over 100,000,000 Mega watts of power. Due to the millions of hamsters and gerbils being forced to run on wheels to generate thi power, it does help America. Especially when the Gerbils have babies and they produce even more gerbils to make electricity. If the gerbil is tired or even thinks of having a break, they are sent to a shower room full of poison gas to…

### How many watts equal 3kva at 110 volts?

It depends entirely on the power factor of the load. If the power factor is unity (1), then the true power, in watts, will equal the apparent power in volt amperes. If the power factor is zero, then the true power, in watts, will be zero. This is because true power (watts) is equal to the apparent power (volt amperes) multiplied by the power factor.
