User: Which of the following is a clear advantage in the use of nuclear power instead of fossil fuels? Nuclear power (Points : 5) plants are cheaper to build than power plants that burn fossil fuels. can be used today to power most forms of public transportation. contributes less to global climate change. generates fewer wastes with lower health risks.

User: 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.

User: Unlike corrosion, embrittlement results in the degradation of nuclear power plant materials from the (Points : 5) buildup up iron oxide after prolonged exposure to water. rapid expansion and contraction of super-heated and ice-cold water through most of the pipes. use of highly corrosive saltwater throughout most of the water pipes. bombardment of materials by neutrons produced by fission.

Weegy: use of highly corrosive saltwater throughout most of the water pipes.

User: Radioactive wastes consist of (Points : 5) the direct products of fission. the indirect products of fission. the direct and indirect products of fission. the direct and indirect products of fusion.

Weegy: C. high-level direct products of fission and low-level indirect products of fission! anything eles I can answer for you?
