QUESTION: 10

Consider the following statements regarding nuclear reactors:

1. In a gas-cooled thermal reactor, if CO2 is used as the coolant, a separatemoderator is not necessary as the gas contains carbon.

2. Fast reactors using enriched uranium fuel do not require a moderator.

3. In liquid metal-cooled fast breeder reactors, molten sodium is used asthe coolant because of its high thermal conductivity.

4. Fast reactors rely primarily on slow neutrons for fission.Of these statements

Solution:
QUESTION: 12

CANDU-type nuclear reactor using natural uranium finds extensive use because
1. Heavy water is used both as coolant and moderator.
2. Cost of fuel used is much lower than that used in pressurized water or
boiling water reactor.
3. Small leakage of heavy water does not affect the performance of the
reactor substantially.
