A loss-of-coolant accident is very dangerous because (Points : 5) without the surrounding water as a moderator, the fission reaction would turn into a fusion reaction. without the surrounding water as a moderator, the fission reaction would increase in rate. the fuel core could overheat from radioactive decay and lead to a meltdown. the leaking coolant would quickly spread highly radioactive material over a large region.
