    Skyrocketing gas prices, Middle Eastern controversy, and plans to drill for oil in the Artic, have regenerated nationwide interest in finding new ways to make the United States less dependent on fossil fuels. In Florida where there were 14. 5 million motor vehicles registered in 2003 making them the third largest energy consuming state, according to the Energy Information Administration. Floridians revere their environment and loathe the possibility of drilling along its coast. "We want it but w...
  • Geothermal Energy 2 Heat Water Hot
    828 words
    I. Overview of Geothermal Energy Geothermal energy (from the Greek words geo [earth] and therme [heat], thus 'earth heat' energy) is a domestic energy resource with cost, reliability, and environmental advantages over conventional energy sources. Energy from this source comes from the renewable source of heat from deep in the Earth (diagram: A). Heat is brought up to near the surface by thermal conduction (diagram: B) and magma. This heat heats ground water to form hydrothermal resources (natura...

    The first question, which I must ask in order to write this essay, is, what is energy Energy gives us the ability to do thing. Everything in the world needs a supply of energy, and so energy is used to make things work. The word energy is taken from the Greeks and means the work within and nearly all energy originally came from the sun. The main type of energy used in the world is fossil fuel. Fossil fuels are called non-renewable because they are the remains of plants and small dead animals, wh...

    Work Work is said to be done when the point of application of a force moves and is measured by the product of the force and the distance moved in the direction of the force. Work = force x distance moved in direction of the force The SI unit of work is called the joule (J) and is the work done when the point of application of a force of 1 Newton (N) moves through 1 meter (m) in the direction of the force. Larger units used are the kilojoules (kJ) and the mega joule (MJ). 1 kJ = 1, 000 J (or 103 ...

    Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is the most important part of the lively hood of humans and animals. Without photosynthesis we would not be able to receive energy. We should be more appreciate of plants, without them we would not survive. This paper will explain the basic components require for photosynthesis, the role of chlorophyll, how energy is transferred, and photosystem I and II and the most precious product results of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a reproductive system that occurs in p...

    Fuel Cell: Fuel cells have been known to science for 150 years and have become the subject of intense research since World War II. A fuel cell generates electricity by producing a chemical reaction. It consists of two electrodes (cathode and anode), which is also where the reaction occurs. Hydrogen is the basic fuel cell, but all fuel cells also require oxygen, and both are supplied from external reservoirs. Most of the hydrogen and oxygen used, combine to form a harmless byproduct, namely wate...

    Alternative Energy The United States depends on fossil fuels, like oil and coal, for energy. According to experts these sources will exhaust by the year 2050. Fossil fuels also pollute the environment. So we need to search for alternative energy sources which are reliable and renewable. Wind power is the force of the wind harnessed by windmills and wind turbines that convert it into electricity. Because wind is a clean and renewable source of energy, modern wind turbines are being installed in ...

    Should The United States Invest More Money In Renewable Energy Research And Development As Opposed To Fossil And Nuclear Fuels The United States should invest more money into the research and development of renewable energy. These renewable resources would take the place of fossil fuels, which are non-renewable resources. Fossil fuels will not be here forever; they will be depleted soon. Therefore, we need to research and develop renewable energy so that we can make a smooth conversion from foss...
  • Solar Power Energy Heat Sun

    About 47 per cent of the energy that the sun releases to the earth actually reaches the ground. About a third is reflected directly back into space by the atmosphere. The time in which solar energy is available, is also the time we least need it least - daytime. Because the sun's energy cannot be stored for use another time, we need to convert the suns energy into an energy that can be stored. One possible method of storing solar energy is by heating water that can be insulated. The water is hea...

    Have you ever wondered how a jet aircraft lifts its tremendous weight off the ground, or what gives a runner the stamina to reach the finish line in a race In order to answer all these questions we must talk about the transformation of one sort of energy into another. The jet aircraft gets its power from jet turbines. These powerful jet engines create a high-pressure stream of very hot gases that push the aircraft forward as they leave the engine. This is an example of heat being transformed int...

    Energy Flow Systems Richard White's Organic Machine, and William Cronon's Changes in the Land, both examine environments as energy flow systems. The energy flow model was utilized by the authors to explain relationships within ecosystems. Richard White's thesis is to examine the river as an organic machine, a san energy system that, although modified by human intervention, maintains it's natural, its "unmade" qualities. White emphasizes on energy because it is a useful concept that can be easily...
