== == Nuclear energy is considered safe by some when compared with some other energy sources.
There are three safety issues with nuclear energy: * Controlling the rate of reaction so that it does not get unmanageable. If the rate of reaction is uncontrolled, the reaction cannot be contained, such as in a 'meltdown,' and the outside environment will be exposed to high levels of radioactivity.
* Managing the exposure to radioactive materials used in the reactor. This is necessary during the extraction, concentration, transport, storage and disposal stages, but is most important at stages after concentration, as the radioactivity levels are higher. Disposal of the waste material is a major issue, as the radioactivity from these materials is high for thousands of years. * Security of the material in some of these concentrated states, as they could be used in nuclear weapons.
Contrary to popular belief, the reactors inside a nuclear power facility are not nuclear bombs, and even if a meltdown does occur, the result will not be anything like the blast destruction capability of warheads. Reactors are built fairly deep underground to allow quite a bit of natural radiation shielding against a disaster. Believe it or not, just about every submarine and aircraft carrier in the US. Navy is powered by a nuclear reactor. Nuclear power was probably put into use before it should have been, and the resulting accident scared many people into thinking it is not safe.
it is pretty safe but when used in cars there may be some troubles
Yes, it is.
Yes Solar energy is good beacause it gives us energy, electricity and so on without pouluting the world. :-)
Yes, solar energy is a sustainable and renewable source of energy.
Renewable energy sources are Solar, wind, Geothermal, Tidal are prime energy sources
sun is the primary energy source that drives all weather events
Solar panels are used to make electricity. The energy that panels use to make energy therefore is solar energy.
The term clean source of energy refers to only primary energy sources as wind or solar energy. Electricity, by definition, is not a primary energy source. It is a secondary energy source that is could be produced by a clean energy source as wind or any renewable primary energy source or produced by fossil energy source as oil, natural gas, or coal.
A solar cell is not an energy source, but an energy converter. In the case of solar, the energy source is light, and the solar cell converts it from light energy to electrical energy.
solar light is the source of energy for a solar light
The nuclear fission on the sun is the main source for solar energy. This radiation strikes the earth where it is captured by photovoltaic (PV) panels, or focussed on a Solar Tower. Both methods produce electricity, which is clean and renewable.
Sun is the source of solar energy. Heat is present in solar energy.
Solar energy in an abundant renewable energy source. As long as the sun shines there will be a source of solar energy.
Nuclear fission is main source of solar energy,
what is a better source nuclear or solar energy.
no its a renewable source of energy
Three things that determine the amount of solar energy reaching places on earth are season, solar flares, and the presence of the ozone. Solar panel are a clean source of electricity
Solar energy is renewable energy and is environmentally friendly
