  • Power Plants

    1. 1. P OWER P LANTS By Duck May Flower
    2. 2. IT’S A WAY TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY FOR OUR HOMES
    3. 3. POWER STATIONS
    4. 4. <ul><li>THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE WE CREATE </li></ul><ul><li>ELECTRICITY </li></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>A POWER STATION CREATES ABOUT 25,000 VOLTS. </li></ul>
    6. 6. USING FUELS TO CREATE ELECTRICITY
    7. 7. <ul><li>TO CREATE ELECTRICITY, WE USE BOTH RENEWABLE AND NONRENEWABLE RESOURCES </li></ul>
    8. 8. NONRENEWABLE RESOURCES <ul><li>INCLUDE </li></ul><ul><li>COAL, GAS AND OIL. </li></ul>
    9. 9. COAL BY BURNING COAL, IT RELEASES THE ENERGY THAT IS KEPT INSIDE.
    10. 10. <ul><li>UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE </li></ul>RUNNING OUT OF THEM
    11. 11. <ul><li>NOW WE ARE SEARCHING FOR RENEWABLE RESOURCES: </li></ul><ul><li>SUCH AS… </li></ul>
    12. 12. USING THE SOLAR PANNELS TO CREATE ELECTRICTY.
    13. 13. OR THE WIND TURBINE.
    14. 14. AND USING THE POWER OF FALLING WATER
    15. 15. BIOMASS
    16. 16. NUCLEAR POWER PLANT USES CONTROLLED NUCLEAR FISSION.
    17. 17. <ul><li>WHEN A ATOM FISSIONS, IT BREAKS INTO </li></ul>FRAGMENTS
    18. 18. <ul><li> WHEN HAPPENS, THE ATOM LOOSES FEW NEUTRONS. </li></ul>
    19. 19. <ul><li>FISSION CAN OCCUR WHEN A HEAVY ATOM GETS A NEW NEUTRON OR IT CAN SIMPLY HAPPEN </li></ul>
    20. 21. INSIDE THE REACTOR
    21. 23. FISSILE ISOTOPES <ul><li>THEY ARE THE ISOTOPES OF SOME ELEMENT WHICH CAN BE SPLIT THROUGH FISSION. </li></ul>
    22. 24. DANGER OF NUCLEAR POWER <ul><li>WHILE WE PRODUCE ELECTRICITY, PEOPLE GET HURT BY THE RADIOACTIVITY RELEASED </li></ul>
    23. 25. Nuclear Meltdown <ul><li>OVERHEATING IN THE CENTER OF A NUCLEAR REACTOR LEADS TO MELTING AND RADIATION ESCAPING INTO NATURE </li></ul>
    24. 26. <ul><li>SOLAR PANELS ARE THE BEST. </li></ul>WHICH IS THE MOST USEFUL?
    25. 27. <ul><li>SOLAR PANNELS GIVE A LOT OF ENERGY, AND ARE FAIRLY ECOLOGICAL. </li></ul>
    26. 28. THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH SOLAR PANELS IS THAT YOU NEED SUNSHINE TO PRODUCE ENERGY
