kilograms of enriched uranium. This occurs in a cycle at the vessels and this cycle is able to be produced because the fission reoccurs from slowed down neutrons from other fissions of Uranium nuclei. This is where the waist comes from; ceramic fuel that undergo radioactive decay. The turbine produces electricity after the steam is created. One of the many things about it is how much it costs. We understand that we had the Fukushima in 2011 disaster that caused three of the fukushima Daiichi reactors to melt, after an earthquake and tsunami. On the other hand these power plants are much safer now, it was an old plant and the new nuclear plants are less likely to melt. Also, the only major accidents have been Three mile island, Fukushima, and Chernobyl but those are the only accidents since over 17,000 cumulative reactor-years of nuclear power operations in 33 countries. Most disasters happen from natural disasters but the europe is less likely to have these. The nuclear power plants are better to this day because they have a better cooling system and are searching for a way to reuse old fuel. They have came up with an “ core catching” tool in case it overheats again so it

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
