Do you know Physics? Especially the part about nuclear energy. Let's see if the points of the Physics teacher really got through.

• 1.

### Which one do you like?

• A.

Rico Noah

• B.

Albert Einstein

• C.

Enrico Fermi

• D.

Benjamin Franklin

C. Enrico Fermi
Explanation
Enrico Fermi is the correct answer because the question is asking for a preference, and out of the given options, Enrico Fermi is the only one who is not a fictional character or a famous scientist. Rico Noah is not a well-known figure, Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin are renowned scientists, but Enrico Fermi is the only option that stands out as a non-fictional person.

### Which formula is known with nuclear energy?

• A.

E=mc^2

• B.

P=VR

• C.

V=D/t

• D.

F=ma

A. E=mc^2
Explanation
The formula e=mc^2 is known as the equation for nuclear energy. It states that energy (e) is equal to mass (m) multiplied by the speed of light (c) squared. This formula, derived by Albert Einstein, explains the relationship between mass and energy and is fundamental in understanding nuclear reactions and the immense amount of energy released during processes such as nuclear fission and fusion.

### Who created the formula e=mc^2

• A.

Albert Einstein

• B.

Charlie Chaplin

• C.

Hans Bethe

• D.

Patrick Moore

A. Albert Einstein
Explanation
Albert Einstein is credited with creating the formula e=mc^2. This equation is a fundamental principle in physics and is part of Einstein's theory of relativity. It states that energy (e) is equal to mass (m) multiplied by the speed of light (c) squared. This equation revolutionized our understanding of the relationship between energy and mass, and has had profound implications in the field of physics.

### Who first created a nuclear bomb?

• A.

United States of America

• B.

Belgium

• C.

Russia

• D.

China

A. United States of America
Explanation
The United States of America is the correct answer because they were the first to successfully develop and detonate a nuclear bomb during the Manhattan Project. This project was a top-secret research and development effort during World War II, led by American scientists, which resulted in the creation of the first atomic bomb. The successful test of the bomb, code-named Trinity, took place on July 16, 1945, in New Mexico, marking the beginning of the nuclear age.

### What was the name of the project that led to the creation of the first nuclear bomb in USA?

• A.

Phantom X

• B.

Boom Project

• C.

• D.

Manhattan Project

D. Manhattan Project
Explanation
The correct answer is Manhattan Project. The Manhattan Project was a top-secret research project during World War II that aimed to develop the first atomic bomb. It was led by the United States with the support of the United Kingdom and Canada. The project successfully produced the first nuclear weapons, which were eventually used in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

### Which is the worst nuclear accident in the history of mankind?

• A.

Three Mile Island accident

• B.

Chernobyl incident

• C.

Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster

• D.

SL-1 accident

B. Chernobyl incident
Explanation
The Chernobyl incident is considered the worst nuclear accident in history. On April 26, 1986, a reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine exploded, releasing a massive amount of radioactive material into the atmosphere. The explosion and subsequent fire caused immediate deaths and injuries, and the long-term effects of radiation exposure have led to numerous health issues and environmental damage. The Chernobyl incident had a significant impact on public perception of nuclear power and led to major changes in safety protocols and regulations worldwide.

### When did the Chernobyl incident occur?

• A.

June, 1890

• B.

February, 2009

• C.

April, 1986

• D.

December, 1990

A. June, 1890
• 8.

### Which is the biggest nuclear reactor?

• A.

Mars

• B.

The sun

• C.

The Earth's core

• D.

Nukey Poo

B. The sun
Explanation
The sun is the correct answer because it is the largest nuclear reactor in our solar system. It generates energy through nuclear fusion, where hydrogen atoms combine to form helium, releasing a tremendous amount of heat and light in the process. The sun's immense size and mass allow it to sustain these fusion reactions, making it the biggest nuclear reactor.

### Who first used nuclear energy to create electricity?

• A.

America

• B.

Russia

• C.

China

• D.

Japan

B. Russia
Explanation
Russia was the first country to use nuclear energy to create electricity. In 1954, the Obninsk Nuclear Power Plant in Russia became the world's first nuclear power plant to generate electricity for a power grid. This marked a significant milestone in the history of nuclear energy and established Russia as a pioneer in the field.

### Who first used a nuclear powered submarine?

• A.

China

• B.

South Africa

• C.

Germany

• D.

America

D. America
Explanation
America is the correct answer because the United States Navy commissioned the first nuclear-powered submarine called USS Nautilus in 1954. This technological advancement revolutionized submarine capabilities by providing longer endurance and greater underwater speed. The successful deployment of the nuclear-powered submarine marked a significant milestone in naval warfare and propelled America to the forefront of submarine technology.
