EDEXCEL PHYSICS ADDITIONAL P2 QUIZ VARIOUS TOPICS

Please don't use this quiz as a staple revision source. I have made flash cards for P2 (not electronically) and when filtering through which answers I know and which I don't, this quiz is based on all the flash cards I didn't know.

1. What is critical mass?

  • The maximum mass of fissile material (uranium) that is able to sustain a chain reaction.
  • The minimum mass of fissile material (uranium) that is able to sustain a chain reaction.
  • The TIR.
  • The amount of KE energy produced in fission

Other questions in this quiz

2. How do coolants control chain reactions?

  • By using kinetic energy
  • Removing the thermal energy produced in fission reactions so it can be used to heat water to produce steam to power turbines
  • By slowing down fast moving electrons
  • Changing thermal energy into electrical energy to power turbines

3. What is terminal velocity?

  • A constant velocity - when air resistance is equal to the weight of the object and the resultant force is now 0
  • A constant velocity - when resultant force is 100
  • An alternating velocity
  • A slow velocity

4. What will experience air resistance?

  • All objects moving undergroud
  • All objects moving in the air experience air resistance
  • Nothing
  • Stationary objects

5. How do moderators increase rates of fission?

  • Slowing down fast-moving neutrons because slow moving neutrons are more likely to be absorbed by the uranium atom
  • Slowing down fast-moving protons because slow moving protons are more likely to be absorbed by the uranium atom
  • Removing the thermal energy produced in fission reactions so it can be used to heat water to produce steam to power turbines
  • Slowing down fast-moving electrons because slow moving electrons are more likely to be absorbed by the uranium atom
