1 Energy Transformation Project! By: Cydonia Hubicki, Evan Schindewolf,and Austin Brehio

2 Marsh Tree Stage -Light-inducer -Energy-induced processes of the Chlorophyll -Recycling of nutrients -Sedimentation

3 Coal -Coal -Components - H, C, S, O, N -Carboniferous Period -Plant vegetation, heat, pressure and time - coal formationhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBeXRRTGjNE&feature=related

4 Types of Coal -Separate Categories of Coal - Carbon % -Peat -Coal: -Lignite -Sub-bituminous -Bituminous -Anthracite -Graphite

5 Mining for Coal -Mines found on every continent -Typical mining styles -Surface mining -Underground mining -Long-wall mining -Conventional mining -Fun Facts: -Recorded world consumption -Estimated amount -Greatest supplier -Transported to power plants

6 At the Power Plant -Stage 1: Boiler coal is burnt in a furnace heat air is delivered coal's carbon and air's oxygen -Stage 2: Thermodynamic Process heat boils water producing steam steam spins turbine impulse and thrust rotate turbine -Various ways to increase efficiency -Pollutants = CO 2, SO 2, NO 2 - coal to electricity

7 Electric Current -Turbine interacts with series of magnets -Magnets induce current -Varying voltage and alternating current -Transformers raise and lower voltage -Raised for power lines -Lowers for household use -Dispersed to outlets

8 Outlet to Projector Screen -Halogen bulb -Heat melts crystals -Light passes through -Pixels -Primary color pixels -Projected onto a phosphor coated screen

9 Marsh Tree to Projector Light Summary 1 -Marsh trees absorb energy from sun and photosynthesize -Once dead, decomposers break down the remains and recirculate nutrients -Vegetation grows over, and heat and pressure compact the left over vegitation to form coal -Coal is mined and transported to a power plant -It is burned to heat water, which boils -The steam spins a turbine and forms electric current (by usage of magnets)

10 Marsh Tree to Projector Light Summary 2 - The current goes through another set of transformers which lower the voltage to go to the outlet -Electric current is sent to home and building outlets -Projector is plugged into outlet as well as the computer -Electric current heats up halogen bulb, melting crystals, allowing light to pass through -Electric current in projector projects picture using pixels of primary colors specified by the computer -The phosphor coated screen allows light to be reflected off of it -Thus producing the image from the projector screen
