  1. 1. Nuclear Reactor & Reactions<br />16.2<br />
  2. 2. E=mc2<br />Einstein’s equation- mass and energy are interchangeable<br />
  3. 3. http://library.thinkquest.org/17940/texts/fission/fission.html<br />Fission<br />
  4. 4. Fission Video<br />
  5. 5. Nuclear Reactors<br />
  6. 6. Designed to generate electricity<br />Core- holds fuel, control rods, coolant<br />Steam generator- pressure is dropped, water boils to make steam<br />Turbine- steam turns turbine which generates electricity<br />Cooling towers- pumps water to cool steam which gets recycled back to generator<br />
  7. 7. 1 – control rods<br />2 – reactor cover<br />3 – reactor chassis<br />4 – inlet and outlet nozzles<br />5 – reactor vessel<br />6 – active reactor zone<br />7 – fuel rods<br />
