  • Conservation of Momentum and Energy

    Lab 5 Conservation of Momentum and Energy Abstract The physics laws governing conservation of momentum and mechanical energy were investigated by performing multiple experiments with differing conditions. Conservation laws state energy is to be conserved in systems with no net external forces. Two trials consisted of inelastic collisions and two trials consisted of elastic conditions. Photogate software helped decipher initial and final velocities in order

  • Essay on Energy Conservation

    Energy conservation is a very important part of energy planning and its management. It not only saves energy resources for future‚ avoids wasteful utilisation of energy‚ provides solution to energy crisis and ensures higher per capita availability/ consumption but controls environmental degradation and pollution. New strategy emphasies greater reliance on non-exhaustible and non-conventional sources of energy so as to conserve exhaustible conventional resources like coal‚ petroleum‚ natural gas

  • Energy Conservation

    Abstract Energy management and conservation is an important tool to help enterprises to meet their critical objectives of short term and long term goals. The main objective of the energy conservation is to maximize the profit‚ minimize the cost of energy and to ensure sustainability in the long term. India is one of the largest tea producers in the world‚ with an annual production of more than 856‚000 tons. Estimates indicate that 1.3 million tons of firewood and 435 million units of electricity
