types of energy and their transformation
TYPES OF ENERGYand their Transformation

Mechanical, Electromagnetic, Electrical,

Chemical and Thermal

what is mechanical energy
Energy due to a object’s motion (kinetic) or position (potential).

The bowling ball has mechanical energy.

When the ball strikes the pins, mechanical energy is transferred to the pins!

What is Mechanical Energy?
what is electromagnetic energy
“Light” energy

Includes energy from gamma rays, xrays, ultraviolet rays, visible light, infrared rays, microwave and radio bands

What is Electromagnetic Energy?
what is electrical energy
Energy caused by the movement of electrons

Easily transported through power lines and converted into other forms of energy

What is Electrical Energy?
what is chemical energy
Energy that is available for release from chemical reactions.

The chemical bonds in a matchstick store energy that is transformed into thermal energy when the match is struck.

What is Chemical Energy?
what is thermal energy
Heat energy

The heat energy of an object determines how active its atoms are.

A hot object is one whose atoms and molecules are excited and show rapid movement.

A cooler object\'s molecules and atoms will show less movement.

What is Thermal Energy?

where does our energy come from for
Where does our energy come from for…?
  • Electric light
  • Mobile phones
  • Power for your mp3
  • TV
  • Hot Water
slide26
Energy for these things come from Energy Resources, that are converted into energy that we can easily use.

Electricity is the main form of energy that we use and can power or charge what we need energy for.

to generate electricity
To generate electricity…
  • You need an energy source, e.g. coal
  • This is burnt to produce heat or steam
  • The heat or steam then drives a turbine
  • The turbine then can drive a generator
  • The generator then produces electricity
  • The electricity is then transported in cables to where it is needed
energy resources can be divided into 2 categories
Energy Resources can be divided into 2 categories:
  • Non-Renewable Resources

For example – coal, oil, gas, uranium or lignite

Once used these resources CANNOT be used again

2. Renewable Resources

For example – wind, water or solar

These resources can be used over and over again

non renewable resources coal
Non-Renewable Resources: COAL

What is it?

  • Formed underground from decaying plant material

How much left in the world?

  • About 200 years

Advantages?

  • Plenty left
  • Mining is getting more efficient

Disadvantages?

  • Pollution: CO2 emissions (linked to global warming), SO2 (linked to acid rain)
  • Heavy & bulky to transport
non renewable resources oil
Non-Renewable Resources: OIL

What is it?

  • Formed underground from decaying animal and plant material

How much left in the world?

  • Estimates vary, but average about 40 years

Advantages?

  • Quite easy to transport
  • Efficient in producing energy
  • Less pollution than coal

Disadvantages?

  • Not much left
  • Pollution: air and danger of water pollution through spills
non renewable resources natural gas
Non-Renewable Resources: NATURAL GAS

What is it?

  • Formed underground from decaying animal and plant material

How much left in the world?

  • Estimates vary from 60-100 years

Advantages?

  • Clean, least polluting of all non-renewables
  • Easy to transport

Disadvantages?

  • Some air pollution
  • Danger of explosions
non renewable resources nuclear
Non-Renewable Resources: NUCLEAR

What is it?

  • Uses uranium, naturally found in some rocks

How much left in the world?

  • Not known

Advantages?

  • Not much waste and few CO2 emissions released, as well as, few other greenhouse gases

Disadvantages?

  • High cost to build and close down power stations.
  • Waste is radioactive. Problem with getting rid of waste safely
non renewable resources lignite between peat and coal
Non-Renewable Resources: LIGNITE (between peat and coal)

What is it?

  • Formed underground from decaying plant material

How much left in the world?

  • Estimates vary, but average ~30 years

Advantages?

  • A local resource good for generating electricity

Disadvantages?

  • Air pollution, scarring of landscape through open-cast mining
  • High moisture content
slide34

Why is the term, FOSSIL FUEL used for coal, oil, gas and lignite?A Because they all contain fossils.B Because they were once food sources for things that are now fossils.C Because they are derived from living matter of a previous geological age.D Because of their energy per unit of mass.E Because Prof. Geller said so.

renewable resources wind
Renewable Resources: WIND

What is it? It the movement of air from high to low pressure

How much left? Lots

Advantages? No pollution

Disadvantages? Winds change all the

time, not predictable

renewable resources solar
Renewable Resources: SOLAR

What is it? Energy from the sun

How much left? Lots

Advantages? No pollution, can be used in remote areas

Disadvantages? Can be expensive, needs sunlight

At night it doesn’t work

renewable resources bio energy
Renewable Resources: BIO-ENERGY

What is it? Biomass and Biogas –

  • fermented animal or plant waste
  • vegetation from sustainable sources

How much left? Lots

Advantages? Good availability

Disadvantages? Can be expensive to set up

renewable resources hydro
Renewable Resources: HYDRO

What is it? Movement of water drives a turbine

How much left? Lots

Advantages? No CO2 emissions, can control flooding and provide a good water supply to an area

Disadvantages? Large areas maybe flooded. Visual and water pollution

renewable resources geothermal
Renewable Resources: GEOTHERMAL

What is it? Heat from the ground – often used to heat water

How much left? Lots

Advantages? No CO2 emissions

Disadvantages? Expensive and can only be used in certain parts of the world

renewable resources water tidal
Renewable Resources: WATER & TIDAL

What is it? Movement of sea drives turbines

How much left? Lots

Advantages? Can produce a lot of electricity, no CO2 emissions

Disadvantages? Not many suitable sites
