    Wireless energy transfer or wireless power is the transmission of electrical energy from a power source to an electrical load without artificial interconnecting conductors. Wireless transmission is useful in cases where interconnecting wires are inconvenient, hazardous, or impossible. The most common form of wireless power transmission is carried out using direct induction followed by resonant magnetic induction. Other methods under consideration include electromagnetic radiation in the form of microwaves or lasers…

    atmosphere–ocean system and motivates the deeper examination to follow. The character of coupled atmosphere–ocean interactions is briefly introduced. Simple energy balance models are derived and used to illustrate the fundamental mechanisms behind variations of temperature with altitude, latitude, and season. The global annual mean energy balance is then presented and briefly discussed. Finally, the origins, thermodynamic structure, and composition of the atmosphere and ocean are summarized.…

    Energy transfers which take place in living organisms The nucleotide ATP (adenosine triphosphate) maintains both catabolic and anabolic reactions. Catabolic reactions e.g. respiration are where larger molecules are broken down into smaller ones with energy being released, and anabolic reactions e.g. photosynthesis are where smaller molecules are built up into larger ones which require energy. Catabolism provides the energy for organisms to synthesise larger molecules in its anabolic reactions.…

    ecological awareness, and the conclusion that energy should not be wasted, it is necessary to investigate the places where electrical energy is consumed. The effective energy usage of a device can often be determined by monitoring the according electrical devices over a long space of time. The measuring can easily be done by simple Energy Meters from the local do-it-yourself store. An energy meter is a device that measures the amount of electrical energy that is being consumed by a residence, business…
