(4) What are some safeguards in constructing a nuclear plant? (5) What are the benefits of having a nuclear plant? (6) How will the costs and dangers of a nuclear plant compare with electric plants using oil or coal? and (7) How does a nuclear plant affect the Philippine economic situation and relationship with foreign groups. It is intended to reinforce and supplement a lesson titled, "A Visit to a Nuclear Power Station" in the High School Science IV, "Physics in Your Environment."
