Using named examples

Using named examples, evaluate the economic and political impacts of disruption to energy supply pathways. (15) An energy pathway is the route or journey energy takes from the source country to the consuming country. It is often seen that economic and political impacts disrupt energy supply pathways. To begin with, some countries in the Middle… View Article

Finding The Energy Given Off From Various Fuels

Research Question: > Which of these fuels (ethanol, methanol and butanol) releases the most kinetic energy per ringitt? Hypothesis: > Ethanol will release the most kinetic energy per ringitt because it has an average amount of CH compounds ( Materials: > Spirit burner with ethanol 3 aluminum cans > Spirit burner with methanol Logger Pro… View Article

Can We Paint With All the Colours of the Wind?

Some may think that we own the earth and we can do whatever we want to it. Most of the time, we are more concerned about making our lives more comfortable even though we are already living in a modern city like Hong Kong. Every day we consume energy and fail to recognize how we… View Article

Energy Efficiency Experiments

The most efficient out of all the experiments was experiment 4 because a small amount of electrical energy produced kinetic energy + heat energy which caused gravitational potential energy + more heat energy. The efficiency of experiment 4 was 3790 % which is a substantial amount compared to the other experiments. Maximum productivity was achieved… View Article

Heat energy

We did happen to spill the alcohol burner (only once, luckily) as we tried to put the flame out on the alcohol burner and set fire to our workstation which did results in a bit of a lively fiasco, which was fun… But didn’t really help us in terms of the time lost clearing up… View Article

Energy Society

The Kyoto Protocol The official name of the Protocol is The Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. It is an agreement by 165 countries for mandatory targets for the reduction of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. These gases—carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and several fluorinated gases are believed to contribute… View Article

Energy Lab

Part A. 3. Black can heats faster than the silver one. The reason is that dark colored objects absorb energy better than light ones. Can painted flat black would absorb most of the energy that falls on it, while silver can acts as a reflector. 4. Black can looses its heat faster because of the… View Article

Energy and Society

Energy is a vital aspect in human life. Ever since the dawn of human civilization, energy has also been there to support survival and foster development and progress. The human society’s survival is greatly dependent on the energy that is abundantly present in the environment and this is evidently supported by many historical events such… View Article

Energy And Matter

What are the four states of matter? The four states of matter are solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Using water as an example, describe how matter can change from one form to another. Liquid to Gas (Evaporation): As heat energy is added to water molecules (boiling of water), they begin to move more rapidly and… View Article

Solar Energy

|The increasing cost of energy and the reality of almost-depleted oil resources have driven man to discover alternative sources. And now, the human race has turned to the basic elements of nature by harnessing energy from wind, water, and the sun. Solar energy is a renewable form of energy and has been a major focus… View Article

The Immediate Need to Implement Clean Renewable Energy Sources

In the words of Nobel Peace Prize winner, Al Gore, we have a “planetary emergency” at our hands (Gore). For the last 30 years, earth has steadily been exposed to harmful greenhouse gases resulting in continuous degradation to our environment. The World Watch Institute has reported the earth’s ice layer is melting at its fastest… View Article

Alternative Energy Souces For Lee County

Introduction The United States of America is constantly searching out newer and more efficient sources of energy.  Reliance on foreign sources of energy poses a threat to the American people.  Lee County, Florida is also doing its part to implement new and more efficient sources of energy.  The rate at which the American population consumes… View Article

The Struggle Of Oil In America

Introduction Since its discovery 150 years ago, petroleum oil has become lifeline of the world, the functional equivalent of blood in the human body. The mechanism driving the entire transportation system from automobiles, airplanes, railways, ships to space rockets is based on utilization of energy of petroleum oil. Petroleum products are also extensively used in… View Article

Solar Power The trends and future of solar power generation

Solar power is being increasingly conceived as a possible alternative to traditional energy sources, given the rise in costs associated with traditional energy sources. Although it had for long, been considered as highly uneconomic; this notion has been changing with the improvement in technologies. It should be noted here that generation of solar power is… View Article

Search for Alternative Renewable Energy Resources

The use of alternative energy sources to alleviate reliance to fossil fuels and to protect the environment should be implemented. Non renewable fossil fuels including coal, natural gas and petroleum have been the traditional source of energy all over the world. Dependency of different countries in these non renewable fossil fuels and its detrimental effect… View Article
