Title: Analysis of Energy Sources

Instructions: You will write a 1-page lab report using the scientific method.

When your lab report is complete, post it in Submitted Assignment files.

Part I: Using the lab animation, fill in the data table below to gather your data, and use it to help you generate your hypothesis, outcomes, and analysis.

  Energy Source Fuel (Coal)/Uranium Needed (tons) CO2 Emissions (tons) Sulfur Dioxide and Other Emissions (tons) Radioactivity mSv (millisievert) Solid Waste (tons) Accidents
Quarter 1 Coal 625,000 1.75 Mil 75,000 0.25 150,000 N/A
  Nuclear 18,750/7.5 52,500 0 0.0025 62.5 N/A
Quarter 2 Coal 1.25 Mil 3.5 Mil 150,000 0.5 300,000 Health Impairments
  Nuclear 37,500/15 105,000 0 0.005 125 N/A
Quarter 3 Coal 1.875 Mil 5.25 Mil 225,000 0.75 450,000 Worker Fatalities
  Nuclear 56,250/22.5 157,500 0 0.0075 187.5 Minor Emissions
Quarter 4 Coal 2.5 Mil 7 Mil 300,000 1.0 600,000 Fire Destruction
  Nuclear 75,000/30 210,000 0 0.01 250 Catastrophic releases leading to radiation sickness, death, and environmental contamination

Part II: Write a 1-page lab report using the following scientific method sections:

· Purpose

· State the purpose of the lab.

· Introduction

· This is an investigation of what is currently known about the question being asked. Use background information from credible references to write a short summary about concepts in the lab. List and cite references in APA style.

· Hypothesis/Predicted Outcome

· A hypothesis is an educated guess. Based on what you have learned and written about in the Introduction, state what you expect to be the results of the lab procedures.

· Methods

· Summarize the procedures that you used in the lab. The Methods section should also state clearly how data (numbers) were collected during the lab; this will be reported in the Results/Outcome section.

· Results/Outcome

· Provide here any results or data that were generated while doing the lab procedure.

· Discussion/Analysis

· In this section, state clearly whether you obtained the expected results, and if the outcome was as expected.

· Note: You can use the lab data to help you discuss the results and what you learned.

Provide references in APA format. This includes a reference list and in-text citations for references used in the Introduction section.

Give your paper a title and number, and identify each section as specified above. Although the hypothesis will be a 1-sentence answer, the other sections will need to be paragraphs to adequately explain your experiment.

When your lab report is complete, post it in Submitted Assignment files.
