What is a radiation shield in nuclear power plants?
The radiation shield used on a large scale for fixed shielding is concrete. This is effective because the large mass of concrete absorbs gamma radiation well, and as it contains a lot of water molecules it also stops neutrons from penetrating.

Nuclear power has no dangers. It is the opposite. Nuclear energy is a clean source for power production. It is even cleaner than solar energy. Power generation from nuclear energy is cheaper than that produced from solar, wind, gas, oil, and wind energy sources. Nuclear radiation from nuclear power plants is 100 times less than nuclear radiation from coal fired power plants. Nuclear weapons are of mass destruction nature due to emitted nuclear radiation, heat… Read More
Radon gas, nuclear power plants
Nuclear fusion is used in some nuclear power plants that can handle the heat and radiation without suffering a meltdown. You should check out nuclear fission in power plants first.
I don't think it is much different to those working in conventional power plants, but one additional type of duty is Radiation Health Physics, which is not needed except on nuclear plants
Because an huge earthquake happend and it cused the nuclear power plants to explode so radiation came out
I assume you mean how does nuclear radiation affect the human body. Nuclear energy as used in nuclear power plants has no effect normally as the radiation is well contained. However if you want to know about the effect of radiation on the body, see the link below
Yes - this produces radiation and is utilized in nuclear power plants around the world.

It produces electricity in nuclear power plants, which I would call positive there are negative and positive affects for the use of nuclear energy. It emits low levels of radiation, the making of these plants and to get the fuel for these plants emit large levels of carbon dioxide into the air. -m
The tsunami wiped out almost all of Japan knocking down many buildings such as skyscrapers and nuclear power plants that were operating in Japan. The tsunami destroyed the nuclear power plants and radiation leaked out which caused a raging panic among the people of Japan.
The nuclear power plants are filled with water to keep the atoms from splitting too fast inside the nuclear rod. Because of the earthquake in Japan, the nuclear power plants lost a lot of water in them, which is making the atoms split too fast. Radiation is now leaking from the plants, so crews are going in and dumping seawater into the nuclear plants to cool down the rods.
because the radiation of the uranium heats up and powers the turbine that creates the power

The most serious accident involving nuclear power plants worldwide was Chernobyl because it killed the most people, wiped out an entire city, and still affects people to this day due to the radiation.
Most of the products shipped by the nuclear radiation detection and monitoring segment were shipped to the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Defense, and nuclear power plants.
Unstable isotopes , mining ,refining of plutonium and thorium, production and explosion of nuclear weapons, nuclear power plants and fuels and preparation of radioactive isotopes.
The earthquake and tsunami took out the power to the nuclear plants, so they had nothing to cool them down, and they over heat and start spewing radiation, as of now they are still spewing radation which is covering most of the northern hemisphere.
Nuclear power plants produce electricity by using nuclear energy
1. Nuclear power plants 2. Nuclear weapons Nuclear power plants
because coal power plants use coal and nuclear power plants use nuclear energy to make electricity!!
Radiation we receive is 50% from Radon gas. Surprisingly, Nuclear power plants and reactors emit the least- less than we receive from food or buildings.
You would have to be atleast 30 miles away from an individual nuclear power plant to get away from the deadly amounts of radiation.
nuclear waste is a biproduct of that and nuclear waste is a very hazardous waste it has radiation the bad link and stuff bbut it has good no carbon biprodunt oc waste
Humans work in nuclear power plants for long periods without any harm, in fact they are well looked after and generally a healthy group of people, because such care is taken to monitor the working conditions. Compare this with groups who work in coal mines or steelworks. What you mean I think is the effect of ionising radiation, and the whole world knows this is dangerous. However nuclear power plants are built to such high… Read More
Nuclear power plants do not normally give off radiation that can be detected, but then can have accidental leaks of radioactive materials which, in turn give off radiation. These can get into the environment and be dispersed, eventually causing damage. Probably the most common radioactive substance to get out of nuclear power plants in leaks is tritium. Tritium emits beta radiation with a rather low energy (as beta radiation goes). This means that it cannot… Read More
None due to radiation, but there must have been a few due to normal industrial accidents.
Nuclear power plants are plants to produce electricity through use of steam produced by the nuclear energy obtained from nuclear fission of the used nuclear fuel.
Britain does have nuclear power plants.
No, Nuclear Power Plants Have Emissions of CO2.
No. There are no nuclear power plants in New Mexico.
There are 55 nuclear power plants in Japan.
There are no nuclear power plants in Indiana, USA.
Nuclear power plants use nuclear fission to generate power.
A nuclear power plant is no more dangerous than a fossil power plant. In fact, taking into account the global picture, it is less dangerous, from an economic, and an ecological standpoint. This may seem counter-intuitive, but the fact is that radiation hazard is mitigated by the dilution effects of the atmosphere and oceans and, looking at the big picture, nuclear power plants are safer than fossil power plants, hands down.
No, nuclear radiation has existed sense the first stars in the early universe began fusing hydrogen. Nuclear power is an industry created by man only in the early 1950s.
Nuclear power plants don't release greenhouse gases. Coal power plants are cheaper to build.
by nuclear power ¬.¬
Was there any people exposed to radiation material in the last thirty years in any of the Ontario nuclear power plants?
yes thats how bigfoot was created
No, Indiana does not currently have any nuclear power plants.
Disadvantages of Nuclear Power: · Nuclear Power generates radiation, which can be harmful or even fatal to infected people. · A nuclear meltdown can occur which will release massive amounts of radiation into the community. · Extremely radioactive nuclear waste is produced by nuclear power plants. This stuff can't be just thrown out. The US plans to move all its nuclear was to an underground dump by the year 2010. Currently it is stored in… Read More
No. As of 2012, there are no nuclear power plants located in the state of Montana.
Nuclear power plants do not cause thermal polution.
I don't know which is cheaper, but nuclear is far safer than coal: Nuclear power plants do not pollute the environment because of strict regulations governing their waste. The only danger from nuclear power plants are due to accidents like meltdowns or explosions. There have been a number of nuclear power plant incidents, but altogether, not including Chernobyl, these have only killed around 13 people. Only the Chernobyl incident resulted in widespread loss of life… Read More

Yes, but the radiation is much less powerful than from nuclear power plants or similar sources of radiation. No scientists have ever seen any sickness or cancer caused by the radiation from a mobile phone, but they are still checking to make sure they are safe.
The same way the nuclear power plants in japan polluted the air, it was radioactive, and radiation is very unhealthy to come into contact with.
The waste of nuclear plants are bars that have to be contained within a specific area (somewhere in Nevada for the United States) to decay slowly for thousands of years, releasing a lot of radiation in that time span.
The tsunami caused the fuel rods in the nuclear plants to become exposed and thus unstable, causing a huge potential for radiation poisoning and a catastrophic meltdowns.
Radiation pollution is the increase in natural background radiation. There are many sources of radiation pollution such as research laboratories, nuclear power plants, etc. The worst case of the radiation pollution was the Chernobyl disaster , which occurred over a century ago, but the effects still linger on today.
