Heat transfer print that page


Heat conduction, also called diffusion, is the direct microscopic exchange of kinetic energy of particles through the stationary boundary between two systems. Heat conduction occurs between stationary masses where there is no movement to carry heat away. Heat transfer through the stationary

Geothermal power in New Zealand print that page


Geothermal energy has been described as New Zealand's most reliable renewable energy source, above wind, solar and even hydroelectricity, due to its lack of dependence on the weather. [ 3 ] Contents 1 Geothermal fields 2 History 3 Research 4 Laws and regulations 5 List of

Origin Energy print that page


Origin Energy was formed in February 2000, as a result of a demerger from the Australian conglomerate Boral Limited , in which the energy business was removed from the building and construction materials business to form the new company. [ 1 ] Between 2001 and 2002, Origin acquired the

Thermal contact print that page


In heat transfer and thermodynamics , a thermodynamic system is said to be in thermal contact with another system if it can exchange energy with it through the process of heat . Perfect thermal isolation is an idealization as real systems are always in thermal contact with their environment

Surface energy print that page


For a liquid, the surface tension (force per unit length) and the surface energy density are identical. Water has a surface energy density of 0.072 J/m 2 and a surface tension of 0.072 N/m. Cutting a solid body into pieces disrupts its bonds, and therefore consumes energy . If the cutting

Ocean thermal energy conversion print that page


that OTEC offers the greatest possibilities. OTEC has the potential to offer global amounts of energy that are 10 to 100 times greater than other ocean energy options such as wave power [ citation needed ] . OTEC plants can operate continuously providing a base load supply for an electrical

Conduction (heat) print that page

In heat transfer , conduction (or heat conduction ) is the transfer of thermal energy between regions of matter due to a temperature gradient . Heat spontaneously flows from a region of higher temperature to a region of lower temperature, temperature differences over time, approaching thermal

Pulsed Energy Projectile print that page

The plasma (produced by the early part of the pulse) explodes because its electrons absorb the energy of the later part of the pulse. In 2003, a US military review reported [ citation needed ] that the electromagnetic radiation produced by PEPs had been shown to cause pain and temporary
