Till Now we have studied that energy is the ability of a body to do work .it can also be defined as the ability of a body to bring some change is the energy of that body. Energy is very necessary for human beings; every thing in the universe possessed some energy.
There are two main kinds of Energy
Kinetic energy is produced by the motion of an object and Potential energy is due to the position or structure and composition of matter. Other than these there are seven basic type of Energy.
1. Mechanical energy
2. Radiant Energy (solar energy)
3. Sound energy
4. Chemical energy
5 .Heat energy
6. Electrical Energy
7. Nuclear Energy
Table of energy and its Examples is given below.
Can we convert one form of energy to another form of Energy?
According to 1st law of Thermodynamic “Energy can never be created nor be destroyed but it can be converted from one form to another form “ This means we can convert one form of energy into another form of energy. I.e. coal posse’s chemical energy, when we burn coal, its chemical energy is converted into heat energy and light energy (radiation).
Here we only discussed only about wind energy.
The energy obtained from the mechanical work of wind is called wind energy. Wind is a very good source of energy, by using this source we are able to generate enough energy to run industries and also for local use. Wind energy is generated by fitting a special kind of wind turbine on any open surface on the sea shores are on the roofs of the houses. This wind turbine converts mechanical energy of the wind into electrical energy. Throughout history, people have connected
with the wind. Wind power was used to grind grain and pump water before Electrification of farming in the Midwest. In the early 1970s, oil shortages created...
