    Savage Seas The Wave Machine The wave machine is a simulator that will allow you to create an ocean wave and determine its height. Most ocean waves are formed when the wind blows across the water's surface. The wave height is determined by three factors: wind speed, fetch, and duration. Wind Speed In 1805, Sir Francis Beaufort, observing the effects of wind speed upon the sea, devised the Beaufort Wind Scale. Though wind speed is not the only factor in determining wave size, the Beaufort scale r...

  • A Renewable Energy Source Wind Power
    500 words
    For many years, people have been harnessing the power of wind. Wind propelled boats down water and simple windmills were used to pump water and grind grain. But credit goes to the Dutch who refined windmills so that they could drain swamps and lakes, and in the 19 th century, settlers took this concept with them to the New World. There, windmills were used to pump water for farms and ranches, and later to generate electricity for homes and industry purposes. Industrialization caused a decrease i...

  • Desert Winds And Electrical Energy
    817 words
    Desert Winds and Electrical Energy The energy of the wind can be channeled into other forms of energy besides the energy used as an erosional agent. This is especially true of desert winds. Today, some desert wind is used to make electricity. Wind velocity is affected by air temperature. When air warms and cools, it changes density, which creates air pressure differences that cause wind. In the desert, temperatures may range from 40 o F at night to more than 120 o F in the daytime. Because of t...

    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 ...
  • Wind Energy Development Power

    For human development to continue, we will ultimately need to find sources of renewable or virtually inexhaustible energy. It's difficult to imagine this, but even if we find several hundred or even thousand years of coal and natural gas supplies, what will humans do for the next 250, 000 years or so after they are depleted? Even the most apparently 'inexhaustible's sources like fusion involve the generation of large amounts of waste heat -- enough to place damaging stress on even a robust ecosy...

    One can never know when the wind will blow; it could be a gentle breeze from the north or a monstrous gust from the south. The wind can be refreshing on a hot summer day or it can make a cool winter day frigid. The wind has many aspects to it, just as Harlen Big bear does in the book in Medicine River. Harlen comes and goes with the wind throughout most of Will's days. When he is not around, he is not too far away; usually ready to push Will in the direction that he thinks is best. Like the wind...

These turbines would stand 417 feet high on 24 square miles of Horseshoe Shoal (see attachment A) in Nantucket Sound. If approved this wind farm would be the nation's first and the largest in the world. The average output could provide about 75% of the Cape's usual electric demand (web visited March 3, 2003).

  • Essay On The Use Of Wind Energy
    1,831 words
    What is Wind Energy? Wind Energy is defined as an alternate source of generating electricity. Wind Energy is energy obtained from moving air. The motion of wind results from the heating and cooling of the earth. Wind power is used from a wind turbine, and electricity is generated by its magnetic fields. It is normally turned into useful energy by the action of wind currents on moving surfaces, such as, the sails of a ship, or the blades of a wind turbine. Wind Energy is the fastest growing ...
