Week 3: Understanding 'Research' (part 2)

#3: Alternative Energy Sources:
Nuclear Energy:
Nuclear power station use nuclear fission to generate energy by the reaction of uranium-235 inside a nuclear reactor. The reactor uses uranium rods, the atoms of which are split in the process of fission, releasing a large amount of energy. The process continues as a chain reaction with other nuclei. The energy heats water to create steam, which spins a turbine generator, producing electricity.
Tidal power generation:
Tidal power can be extracted from Moon-gravity-powered tides by locating a water turbines in a tidal current, or by building impoundment pond dams that admit-or-release water through a turbine. The turbine can turn an electrical generator, or a gas compressor, that can then store energy until needed. Coastal tides are a source of clean, free, renewable, and sustainable energy.
