... Assignment #1 ASSIGNMENT #1 Energy can be converted from one form to another by one form of energy decreases, other forms increasing, because the total energy has to stay constant and that’s only if you're looking at an isolated object. Potential energy can be converted to Kinetic and kinetic can be converted to potential. (Tillery, Enger, & Ross, 2009, p. 67). Energy can be converted in three basic ways through 3 actions of forces. Gravitational Forces is when gravity accelerates a falling object, its converts its potential energy to kinetic energy. Electric and Magnetic Force Fields can convert charged particles, which electrical fields use forces, possess potential energy of an electric field in a way similar to that of an object in a gravitational field. Frictional Forces can be converted into thermal energy, which is heat, whenever the object slides against another object. An example of an energy being converted from one form to another is a lightbulb. It converts electrical energy to radiant energy. A car can covert chemical energy to mechanical energy. A solar cell converts radiant energy to electrical energy to mechanical energy. A fuel converts to chemical energy to heat energy. What we mean by fossil fuels is that Fossil fuels are energy resources that come from the remains of plants and animals. These remains are millions of years old. Fossil fuels, like coal, oil, and natural gas, provide the energy that powers our lifestyles and our economy....

...People depend on energy everyday for cooking, lighting, cooling, and warming our homes and automobiles. People consume a great amount of energy. Energy is generated from non-renewable fuels. When people use non renewable energy harmful pollutants are let loose into the air and water. The more people operate ones vehicle the energy power plants produce gasoline that burns which releases pollutants. Another problem is the cost; people are noticing that ones public service utility bill is on the rise. People need to get the information that is needed to conserve energy. People need to realize that the negative effects that non renewable energy has on the planet. Non renewable energy resources are coal, oil, and natural gas. Coal resources are too expensive to expand and have the possibility to supply an efficient amount of coal to last. Coal use has risen in the last 4 years. Coal is a difficult non renewable resource to obtain because it is accessed by mining. Oil is a combustible energy that is access by drilling and pumping. When non renewable energy has been used up it can not be replaced. The living factor is that mining damages existing vegetation and the land is sensitive to the wind destruction causing air pollution. There is also water destruction which causes pollution to the waterways and destruction to aquatic habitats. Farmers are concerned about the water depletion in the underground due to the open-pit gold mining which uses a......

...sold at lower prices. The competitive force with the greatest effect on profitability of new entrants is a threat of entry. Question three The market for energy drinks, sports drinks and vitamin-enhanced drinks is changing in several ways. There is innovation of products with the rise of drinks containing additional nutrients and introduction of energy shots. Furthermore, the industry is also considering consolidation options in an attempt of reducing distribution costs, for example Coca-Cola distributed Hansen’s Monster energy drink. The drivers of change are changes in the long-term growth rate, industry consolidation and introduction of new innovative products into the industry. The forces individually or collectively may not cause big changes in the attractiveness of the industry. The reason for that is there is no evidence that the big companies of alternative beverages will practice unhealthy and aggressive competition for market dominance. Question Four My strategic group map of energy drinks, sports drink and vitamin enhanced beverage industry is categorized by considering the scope of geographic distribution of producers and brand portfolio. Pepsi and Coca-Cola are positioned favorably since they compete internationally and have a strong brand portfolio. Hansen Natural is a dominant brand company since Monster energy drink accounts for 90 percent of its sales. The success of this company is mainly contributed by strong supply chain due to its partnership with......

...discuss how energy can be converted from one form to another, giving specific examples. The ability to do work is how energy can be defined. “Energy is never created or destroyed. Energy can be converted from one form to another but the total energy remains constant” (Tillery, Enger, & Ross, 2009, p.65). There are various forms of energy and terms are used to distinguish one from the other. There are not different kinds of energy even though there are various forms. These five different forms of energy are categorized as mechanical, chemical, radiant, electrical and nuclear. Mechanical energy is a combination of potential and kinetic energy resulting from the force of gravity or the movement or release of a machine component. An example of mechanical energy would be bowling ball (kinetic energy) striking a pin and displacing it (potential energy). Chemical energy is a form of potential energy that is absorbed or released by chemical reactions. Dried wood stores chemical energy and when burned, releases chemical energy that converts to heat and light. Radiant energy is energy that travels through space. An example of radiant energy would be light. The light from the sun makes it possible for living things to live on earth by providing fuel and warmth. Electrical energy is a form of energy from electromagnetic interactions. Electrical energy is the presence and flow of an electric charge. Lightning or a light bulb would be examples of electrical energy. Nuclear energy is......

...THE ENERGY CRISIS IN PAKISTAN Submitted By GROUP 7 1. Abdul-Rehman (3702) 2. Rehan Hussain (3777) 3. Ubaid-ur-Rehman (3778) 4. Junaid Ghayoor Hussain (3780) 5. Muhammad Ansaar (3824) 6. Abdul Sami khan (3825) ABSTRACT Electricity Crisis in Pakistan is one of the severe challenges the country is facing today. Electricity is essential part of our daily life and its outage has severely affected the economy and overall living of ours. Thousands have lost their jobs, businesses; our daily life has become miserable. Pakistan is currently facing upto 18 hours of electricity outage a day, is expected to face more if not dealt with in time. The purpose of this study is to analyze the nature of this crisis and to propose some short-term as well as long-term solutions to this problem. This study is exploratory in nature. We have done our best to conclude and sketch up some recommendations in the light of identified hurdles in the way of implementing the appropriate solution to our problem. Our study finds some major wholes in our system if they are covered up we can not only overcome the deficiency of electricity in our systems but also we can be able to export it to our neighboring countries. The basic flaws that our study identified are related to circular debt, and the inadequate capacity of our electricity production and distribution systems. Also we emphasized on some prospective alternatives......

...GEOTHERMAL ENERGY Geothermal energy is one of the oldest sources of energy. It is simply using and reusing (reusable energy) heat from the inside of the earth. Most of the geothermal energy comes from magma, molten or partially molten rock. Which is why most geothermal resources come from regions where there are active volcanoes. Hot springs, geysers, pools of boiling mud, and fumaroles are the most easily exploited sources. The ancient Romans used hot springs to heat baths and homes, and similar uses are still found in Iceland, Turkey, and Japan. The true source of geothermal energy is believed to come from radioactive decay occurring deep within the earth. Electricity is one of the biggest outputs of geothermal energy. It was first recorded to produce electricity in 1904 in Italy. There are now geothermal power plants in operation in New Zealand, Japan, Iceland, the US and elsewhere. For the generation of electricity, hot water, at temperatures ranging from about 700 degrees F, is brought from the underground reservoir to the surface through production wells, and is flashed to steam in special vessels by release of pressure. The steam is separated from the liquid and fed to a turbine engine, which turns a generator. In turn, the generator produces electricity. Spent geothermal fluid is injected back into peripheral parts of the reservoir to help maintain reservoir pressure. If the reservoir is to be used for direct-heat application, the geothermal water is......

...Energy Portfolio management (Like Financial Portfolio management) is the Key to solving today’s and the future’s energy issues….. by Doug Story I believe it has been determined and accepted by almost everyone in the financial management industry and by those of us that invest or have our jobs supply financial instruments such as IRAs, Roth IRAs, 401Ks, etc for our retirement that it is imperative that our financial portfolio be diversified in such a manner that when part of the portfolio drops in value other parts of the portfolio will climb so that we may maintain, protect and continue to grow our funds in preparation for retirement. For example, why was the ENRON collapse such a disaster to most of the employees at ENRON? ENRON management had put pressure on everyone in the company retirement program to put all of their retirement savings into ENRON stock, so when the stock collapsed from its record highs these employees lost everything. If many of the employees at ENRON had invested in a diversified portfolio most of the money they placed in their retirement accounts may have been protected from the collapse of the ENRON stock. What does “Diversified Retirement or Stock Portfolio” mean? Simply put it means having a retirement account that is spread out over a range of stocks, bonds, cash and even precious metals. If the stock market goes down, in theory the bonds and precious metals will stabilize or go up at a rate that equals or reduces the losses due to the......

...In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy which it possesses due to its motion. It is defined as the work needed to accelerate a body of a given mass from rest to its stated velocity. Having gained this energy during its acceleration, the body maintains this kinetic energy unless its speed changes. The same amount of work is done by the body in decelerating from its current speed to a state of rest. In classical mechanics, the kinetic energy of a non-rotating object of mass m travelling at a speed v is ½ mv². In relativistic mechanics, this is only a good approximation when v is much less than the speed of light. In physics, potential energy is the energy of an object or a system due to the position of the body or the arrangement of the particles of the system. The SI unit for measuring work and energy is the joule (symbol J). The term potential energy was coined by the 19th century Scottish engineer and physicist William Rankine, although it has links to Greek philosopher Aristotle's concept of potentiality. Potential energy is associated with a set of forces that act on a body in a way that depends only on the body's position in space. This allows the set of forces to be considered as having a specified vector at every point in space forming what is known as a vector field of forces, or a force field. If the work of forces of this type acting on a body that moves from a start to an end position is defined only by these two positions and does not depend on...

...down, charm, strange, top, or bottom. What can quarks be broken down to? Theoretical matter aka empty space. How do these things work? Energy, pure energy. When you break it down everything comes down to either empty space or energy. How do you control energy? You control energy with energy. There are several types of energy, but let’s start with the most basic. Good and bad. Good energy is when the energy you are using or the energy that is around is being used or put to a good purpose. Bad energy happens when the intent is to harm or negatively affect someone or something. You also have physical and mental energy. Physical energy is when you affect something outside of yourself, mental energy is what happens inside your own mind. There is potential for mental energy to become physical energy (like when your brain sends signals to muscles to move you) but one thing at a time. First let’s focus on bad energy. Define “bad”. Well: “bad-adjective-having undesirable or negative qualities.” Any type of energy can be “bad energy”. We all create bad energy every day. If we are angry at someone or angry at ourselves, that’s bad energy. If you hurt someone or yourself, that’s bad energy. Even if you are sad or upset that’s bad energy too. It all has an effect on our overall being. You can affect physical things with your bad energy by using mental energy that has been affected first. If your thinking is negative then any physical outcome it may have will be negative as well. For......

...The Energy Document “Be humble, for you are made of earth. Be noble, for you are made of stars.” -Serbian Proverb Science can only talk about what it can measure and it cannot measure thoughts, love, spirit, or God; therefore, it cannot scientifically talk about those things. Science measures the physical make-up of the universe and talks about how it happened, not who made it. An obvious example of this is the illusion of conflict between creationist and evolutionist. They argue as if they are talking about the same thing when they are not. Creationist have no idea how it was done, they only know that God did it. Evolutionist are not at all interested in who did it, they are exploring all the possibilities from physical and mathematical evidence of how one thing led to another. Hydrogen is found to be the most abundant element in the universe (97%) and comprises the core of most stars. Stars are seen as fusion furnaces forming (creating), at the least, the elements of the periodic table up to iron. Science finds that 99.6% of the human body is comprised of 11 elements. 54 trace elements make up the rest of the body. We are made of star dust. Each atom in our bodies is at least 5 billion years old. I wonder where all they have been in that time. This is one big reason to start teaching the Periodic Table of Elements in the 1st Grade. Start with 5 elements that they encounter everyday: Oxygen (air) and Hydrogen (water); add Carbon and make carbon dioxide,...

... “Energyconservation refers to efforts made to reduce energy consumption. Energyconservation can be achieved through increased efficient energy use, inconjunction with decreased energy consumption and/or reduced consumption fromconventional energy sources” ("Energy conservation," 2011). The twotypes of energy are renewable and nonrenewable. Renewable energy sources areconstantly renewed or restored and include wind (wind power), water(hydropower), sun (solar), vegetation (biomass), and internal heat of the earth(geothermal). On the other hand, nonrenewable energy sources are naturalresources that cannot be replenished. Fossil fuels such as oil, gas, and coalare the most commonly used types of non-renewable energy. However,non-renewable energy sources are being depleted at a rapid rate. In fact, (dueto this depletion) there may not be enough non-renewable energy sources forfuture generations. Additionally, (in this paper) I will discuss methods toconserve energy, save money, and help the environment as well. Because fossil fuels (such as oil,gas, and coal) are the most commonly used types of non-renewable energy, I willfocus on these types of non-renewable energy sources. “World energy consumptionhas increased every year since 1982, with most of the increase occurring indeveloping countries” (Berg, & Hager, 2007). “Additional energy demands inhighly developed nations may be met by increasing the energy efficiency ofthings like appliances, automobiles, and home......

...Energy Agnese Strayer University Dr. Andrey R. Pavlov Science 110 April 21, 2012 We recognize energy through the concepts of force and motion. When work is done on an object, it gains energy. Energy is made of two types, potential energy which is stored energy and kinetic energy which consists of moving energy. Food is stored energy. It is stored as a chemical with potential energy. When your body uses that stored energy to do work, it then becomes kinetic energy.(Integrated Science, 2008) Any form of energy can be converted to another form. Most technological devices that we use are recognized as energy converters. Energy cannot be created, nor destroyed. This is the reason why it exists in many forms. For example, a light bulb converts electrical energy to radiant energy. It can come in various forms, mechanical, chemical, radiant, electrical, and nuclear. Thermodynamics is the study of energy being converted from one form to another. There are three laws of thermodynamics. The first law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be converted from one form to another. The second law states that heat energy can be transferred only from body at high temperature to the body at lower temperature. Heat can only be moved from high to low without external work being performed. If you want to move the heat energy from low temperature reservoir to high temperature reservoir, then something external must intercept in order for that to work.......

...Energy Fletcher Hinton Environmental Science Dr. Sandra Flemming April 6, 2012 Abstract This paper will discuss energy use and how it is conversed to do what it needs for the population using it. This paper will give an explanation on how energy use is dictated or regulated by law according to the energy policy act of (2005). Energy use is a major problem the world has today, resources are becoming scarce because of our consumption level is more than can be replenished in the amount of time we need it. The law of conservation of energy states that the quantity of energy stored in a system will be constant throughout time. (Law of conservation of energy, n/d) Since energy is stored it is constant it cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be converted into other forms of energy like solar energy, needs the sun to produce and harvest its energy. There are other forms of energy that can be used for our consumption and they are; fossil fuel: oil, natural gas, and coal, nuclear energy, Solar energy, Wind power, Water (hydro) power, Bioconversion (biofuel). Although, they can help produce energy there are pros and cons to using them for energy consumption. The fossil fuels for one are the most widely used source of energy used because of its reliable resources that can be converted. The con is it will run out because our consumption is more than the resource can produce. Nuclear energy produces 1/6 of the worlds electricity and it doesn`t produce......

...Natural Energy Earthquakes in the World Today Kaplan University SSD300-03 Professor Derby July 4, 2010 Natural Energy 1 Where do earthquakes come from? Below the earth’s surface in a region called hypocenter, this is where the initial activity begins. Moreover, triggers the fault plane to slip where two pieces of earth past one another forming an earthquake generally, certain geographical areas of the country are more prone to this type of activity. History has revealed to us that the San Fernando region in California has been greatly affected by seismic activity over the years. We can view the danger levels from the National Seismic Hazard maps that give us a good depiction of the activity there. The San Fernando fault which it’s commonly known to be in the red zone (very high risk). Unlike, this high level risk region other states bordering California such as Oregon, Nevada and Arizona fall on the scale of yellow, green and tan. Signifying that there is less seismic activity in these states these are a few of the patterns on the west coast. However, moving more to the central region of the country we see some similarities from the west coast. In states such as Tennessee, Arkansas and Missouri where their color scale ranges from green, yellow, tan to red (very high risk). As we can see not only is California prone to being high risk for seismic activity, but other states as well. Growing up in Long Beach, California for a period of time I......
