Nuclear Energy - P2

Advantages

  • A lot more energy than chemical reactions is given out
  • Doesn't produce Carbon Dioxide
  • Nuclear fuel is quite cheap

Disadvantages

  • Radioactive Waste
  • Meaning Irradiation and Contamination could happen
  • Needs extra safety precautions
  • People who live nearby are at risk
  • Longest time to start powering up
  • Cost of Nuclear Power is high

Evaluation

Nuclear Fission is the reaction in Nuclear Energy however Nuclear Energy is a risky source of energy despite the fact that it has a higher yield as it's at risk of explosions and making radioactive waste. RADIOACTIVE, RADIOACTIVE - Imagine Dragons
