12.1 The use of Nuclear Energy
12.2 The production of Nuclear Energy —
Nuclear power comes from nuclear fission Nuclear power plants heat water to produce steam. The steam is used to spin large turbines that generate electricity. Nuclear power plants use heat produced during nuclear fission to heat water. In nuclear fission, atoms are split apart to form smaller atoms, releasing energy.https://www.eia.gov/energyexplained/nuclear/nuclear-power-plants.php
12.3 Impact of Using Nuclear Energy
Nuclear energy produces radioactive waste
A major environmental concern related to nuclear power is the creation of radioactive wastes such as uranium mill tailings, spent (used) reactor fuel, and other radioactive wastes. These materials can remain radioactive and dangerous to human health for thousands of years.
