Nuclear Power by Brendan McManus

  1. 1. Nuclear Power<br />Brendan McManus<br />Eng. 1105 <br />Plant Vogtle at dawn <br />
  2. 2. History of Nuclear Power <br />Hahn and Strassman were the first men to figure out how to harness nuclear fission to turn it into nuclear power / energy.<br />
  3. 3. Harnessing Nuclear Fission <br />Nuclear fission is harnessed by the use of nuclear power rods being submerged into water. <br />
  4. 4. Nuclear Power <br />harnessed nuclear fission used to create heat and do work. <br />nucleus of an atom splits into smaller parts making gamma rays<br />(free neutrons and photons floating around) <br />This heat produced from nuclear fission powers different things therefore being called nuclear power.<br />
  5. 5. How Nuclear Power is Produced <br />fuel rods and the control rods are placed in water that is from an outside source<br />As the nuclear fission occurs water heats up and in tern generates steam<br />steam is then confined to a small pipe which is connected to a large turbine<br />steam turns the turbine and the turbine in turn, turns the generator which creates electricity<br />
  6. 6. Nuclear Power Production Process<br />
  7. 7. Uses of Nuclear Power <br />the use of nuclear power to create electricity<br />used for as means of weapons<br />nuclear powered submarines used by the U.S. navy<br />
  8. 8. Different Usesof Nuclear Power <br />Nuclear <br />Weapons<br />Nuclear Submarine <br />Nuclear Power Plant <br />
