2 Energy Efficiency  When energy is converted from one form to another some energy is converted into other unintended forms.

3 Energy Efficiency Energy Conversion Device Energy Input Useful Energy Output Energy Dissipated to the Surroundings

4 Vehicle Efficiency – Gasoline Engine 25% Of the gasoline is used to propel a car, the rest is “lost” as heat. i.e an efficiency of 0.25

5 Efficiency of Some Common Devices Device Electric Motor Home Oil Furnace Home Coal Furnace Steam Boiler (power plant) Power Plant (thermal) Automobile Engine Light Bulb-Fluorescent Light Bulb -Incandescent Efficiency

6 Efficiency of Energy Conversion  If we are more efficient with the energy we already have there will be less pollution, less reliance on foreign energy sources.
