heavy water plant should be near to fertilizer industry because heavy water is also used in manufacturing fertilizers and pesticides.

The advantage of heavy water as coolant over light water in pressurized heavy water reactors?

Heavy water absorbs fewer neutrons than light water, so it enables natural uranium to be used without enrichment. In Candu reactors it is used as moderator in a separate calandria tank, as well as coolant.

How is heavy water used in the hydrogen bomb?

Heavy water is not used directly in the hydrogen bomb. The deuterium in the heavy water is separated and reacted with lithium metal to make lithium deuteride. Lithium deuteride is a dry powder that is the fusion fuel for hydrogen bombs.

How is Pascal's law used?

It is used to move heavy objects that can't be lifted by a human. You use water to move the heavy object.

What is heavy water and why did Hitler want some?

Heavy water is water with some gases extracted.if you put it in a barrel and put the barrel in water the barrel would sink.Theonly reason Hitler wanted heavy water was because heavy water is used in atomic bombs.the only place he could get the heavy water was Norway. fortunately the Brit's blew up the only cargo ship carrying the heavy water back to Germany...some heavy water is lost in a lake somewhere in norway...lost in time forever.

When the Germans were trying to get the heavy water were they trying to get it from an ocean or what?

Heavy water occurs naturally in all water in a proportion of about one part in twenty million. In order to get a certain amount of heavcy water you have to isolate the heavy molecules out of a large quantity of water. The Germans used fresh water because there would have been no point in having to desalinize before they could even begin isolating the heavy water from the regular water. Heavy water is heavy because one of the hydrogen atoms in the water molecule has a neutron in its nucleus along with the proton.

Water is used to moderate neutrons in a nuclear reactor?

Yes, can be light or heavy water

The moderator used in the nuclear reactor at Madras atomic power station in Kalpakkam is?

Heavy water(PHWR)--Pressurised heavy water reactor

Why is only heavy water used as coolant for nuclear energy and can you use any other coolant used replacing D2O?

Many pressurized water reactors use "regular" water (light water) as a primay coolant. That means that "only heavy water" is not a rule as regards reactor design. Reactor design specifies the coolant to be used.

What is used as an efficient moderator in a majority of reactors?

Light water (H2O) and heavy water (D2O)

Which material is used as a moderator in nuclear power plant?

It can be light water, heavy water, or graphite

Do substance is used as moderator in modern nuclear reactor?

Water (H2), or heavy water (D2O). Sometimes, liquid sodium is used.

Why is heavy water used for heat transfer in nuclear reactor?

Heavy water has the same heat transfer properties as ordinary water, at least in practical terms. It is used in some reactors as the moderator since it is much more efficient at slowing fast neutrons than ordinary water, thus enabling unenriched uranium to be used as the fuel. It is not used to transfer heat to the power producing part of the plant, only as a static tank (called a calandria) full of heavy water as moderator. (See CANDU)

What is the difference between hard water and heavy water?

Hard water contains dissolved minerals in large quantities Heavy water is an isotope of water used nuclear reactors, it contains the deuterium isotope of hydrogen in the molecules

What is the property of heavy water?

"Heavy Water" still has the formula H2O, but the hydrogen in the water has a neutron as well as a proton- much like Helium does. It still has it's one electron however. Heavy water is used in NMR as a solvent for organic chemicals in proton NMR- to avoid interference on the spectra.

What are the industrial applications of heavy water?

Heavy water can be used to make titanium. Titanium is used to make many things, from jewelery to automobiles and self-powered lighting. Titanium is becoming a more common substance, as it is incredibly tough.

How is hydrogen and heavy water different from hydrogen and normal water?

Heavy water is water whose atomic structure consists of oxygen and heavy hydrogen. Heavy hydrogen, or deuterium, is hydrogen with neutrons in its nuclei.
