TYPES OF ENERGY Kinetic - energy in motion Potential - stored energy Chemical - energy stored in the bonds of molecules and atoms Nuclear energy- energy stored in the nucleus of atom Electrical energy- electrons moving through a wire Mechanical, sound, motion, thermal and radiant are other examples
Energy Efficiency percentage of energy input that does useful work in an energy conversion system
When we’re energy efficient we use less energy to do something as good as before or better. We have to remember there is a limited amount of non-renewable fuel sources such as coal and gas. Even if we don’t run out of fuel, we can damage our environment by using too much and wasting energy.
Energy transformations are great, but very inefficient! Our bodies are about 20% efficient, and burning the gasoline in your car is only 10% efficient! Most of the energy is lost in the form of heat!

UNITS OF ENERGY JOULE (J) or kilojoule (kJ) Calorie (cal) amount of heat required to raise the temp of 1 g of water 1⁰C BTU (British thermal unit) amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1 pound of water 1⁰ F Used in US to rate water heaters, furnaces and air conditioners. (coal) Therm (thermal units) often used by gas companies (natural gas)
CONVERSIONS 1 cal = joules 1 BTU = 1.05 kJ = 252 cal 1 therm = 100,000 BTU 1 kWh= 3413 BTU 1 cubic foot of gas contains 1031 BTUs 1 ton of coal contains 2.5 x 10 7 BTUs
POWER- THE RATE AT WHICH ENERGY IS USED P = E/t E= energy t= time THE UNIT FOR POWER IS THE WATT 1 W = 1 J/s A 100 watt light uses 100 J/s of electrical energy Power (watts)= current (amps) x voltage(volts)
FIRST AND SECOND LAWS OF THERMODYNAMICS If a bulb is 20% efficient, then the bulb converts 20% of the electrical energy into light and 80% is lost as waste heat. First Law of Thermodynamics Energy can be converted from one form to another ( electrical → heat) Second Law of Thermodynamics In any energy conversion, some energy is converted into lower quality energy
Knowing the relationship between energy and power allows you to find the energy used when an appliance of known power (watts) operates for a known amount of time. EXAMPLE: how much energy (kJ) does a 75 watt light bulb use when it is turned on for 25 minutes? ANSWER: E = Pxt E = 75 J/s x 60s/min x 25 min = 110,000 J or 110 kJ
The kWh (kilowatt hour) Kilowatt hour is a unit of energy. This is the term used by the electric company. E= P x t 1 kWh is equal to 1 kW (1000 W) delivered continuously for 1 hour (3600 seconds) 1 kWh = 1000 J/s x 3600s = 3,600,000 J or 3.6 e 6 J or 3600 kJ
1 kWh is the energy required to power watt light bulbs for 1 hour. The average US home uses about 10,000 kWh electric energy/year.

2. A.) 1KWH x 3.6 x 10J x 1BTU = 3,412Btu KWH 1,055J B.) The second law of thermodynamics prevents 100% conversion of heat to mechanical or electrical energy. A typical coal fired plant operates at 33% efficiency, meaning that only 1/3 of the energy in coal is converted to electricity.

7A.) 1,000MW x 1,000KW MW = 4,000 Wind Turbines 250 KW B.) Solar energy can help to decrease the total amount of energy provided by the power company by 21.9 %. Solar energy used to heat water could be feasible for small families. It would not be economical or practical to use solar energy as your only energy source at this time. Wood is very inefficient as a heat source. The forest in example 7 could provide enough energy for almost 50 homes. The trees would require continuous replenishment; the soil would require fertilization to maintain……
