An aerial View of the the Fukushima Reactor

An interesting article trign to explain what may have happened to the Reactors after the earthquake and tsunami

Also, this infographic gives you an idea of the relative doses of radiation released from the reactor and into the surrounding area.

For those of you with youtube access, the link is below. Alternatively I can give you the video via USB at school.

The Energy Song by Mr Edmonds

Here are the lyrics

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t can’t be destroyed

The Law of conservation of energy, energy can ony be transformed

Energy exists in many forms, never created or destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t can’t be destroyed

Two main types of energy, potential and kinetic energy

Potential, is energy that stored

Kinetic, is motion energy

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t can’t be destroyed

Some of the forms of potential energy, gravitational, chemical, nuclear and elastic

And some forms of kinetic energy, electrical, mechanical, heat and light

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Dodoooodododoooooooooo

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t be can’t be destroyed

Energy ahaha, It cant be created

Energy ahaha can’t  be can’t be destroyed.

Double Helix Club 4: Making a scale model solar system

3

In this weeks Double Helix club we built a scale model of the solar system. We used the S1 and S2 hallway to show the relative distance between planets.

Use this website to find out your weight on other planets in the solar system.

http://www.exploratorium.edu/ronh/weight/index.html

Your weight can change depending on gravity but your mass is indepedent of gravity.

weight (N) = gravitational field strength ( on Earth this is 9.81) x mass (kg).

Please leave your reflections as comments below, Thanks
