  • 1. EG.EUREM.NETEnergy Fundamentals
  • 2. Energy Fundamentals What is Work? WORK is done when a force causes an object to move in the direction of the force. For work to be done, two things must occur. First, you must apply a force to an object. Second, the object must move in the same direction as the force you apply. If there is no motion, there is no work. Work can be calculated with this formula: Work = Force X Distance W = FXd standard metric unit of force is the Newton and the standard meteric unit of displacement is the meter, then the standard metric unit of work is a Newton•meter, defined as a Joule and abbreviated with a J.
  • 3. Energy Fundamentals What is Work?
  • 4. Energy Fundamentals What is Power? is the rate of doing work or the rate of using energy, which are numerically the same. - or Power is defined as the rate at which work is done upon an object. Like all rate quantities, power is a time-based quantity. Power is related to how fast a job is done. - the standard metric unit for power is a Joule / second Power = Work / time P=W/t
  • 5. Energy Fundamentals What is Power?
  • 6. Energy Fundamentals What is Energy? The capacity or power to do work, such as the capacity to move an object (of a given mass) by the application of force. Energy can exist in a variety of forms, such as electrical, mechanical, chemical, thermal, or nuclear, and can be transformed from one form to another. It is measured by the amount of work done, usually in joules or watts
  • 7. Energy Fundamentals What is Energy?
  • 8. Energy Fundamentals Mechanical, Kinetic and Potential Energies There are two forms of mechanical energy - potential energy and kinetic energy. Potential energy is the stored energy of position. In this set of problems, we will be most concerned with the stored energy due to the vertical position of an object within Earths gravitational field. Such energy is known as the gravitational potential energy (PEgrav) and is calculated using the equation PEgrav = m•g•h where  m is the mass of the object (with standard units of kilograms),  g is the acceleration of gravity (9.8 m/s/s)  h is the height of the object (with standard units of meters) above some arbitraily defined zero level (such as the ground or the top of a lab table in a physics room). 8
  • 9. Energy Fundamentals Kinetic energy is defined as the energy possessed by an object due to its motion. An object must be moving to possess kinetic energy. The amount of kinetic energy (KE) possessed by a moving object is dependent upon mass and speed. The equation for kinetic energy is KE = 0.5 • m • v2 Where  m is the mass of the object (with standard units of kilograms) and  v is the speed of the object (with standard units of m/s). The total mechanical energy possessed by an object is the sum of its kinetic and potential energies 9
  • 10. Energy Fundamentals Types of POTENTIAL Energy Stored energy and the energy of position (gravitational).  CHEMICAL ENERGY is the energy stored in the bonds of atoms and molecules. Biomass, petroleum, natural gas, propane and coal are examples.  NUCLEAR ENERGY is the energy stored in the nucleus of an atom – the energy that holds the nucleus together. The nucleus of a uranium atom is an example.  STORED MECHANICAL ENERGY is energy stored in objects by the application of force. Compressed springs and stretched rubber bands are examples.  GRAVITATIONAL ENERGY is the energy of place or position. Water in a reservoir behind a hydropower dam is an example.
  • 11. Energy Fundamentals Types of KINETIC Energy Motion: the motion of waves, electrons, atoms, molecules and substances.  RADIANT ENERGY is electromagnetic energy that travels in transverse waves. Solar energy is an example.  THERMAL ENERGY or heat is the internal energy in substances – the vibration or movement of atoms and molecules in substances. Geothermal is an example.  MOTION is the movement of a substance from one placed to another. Wind and hydropower are examples.  SOUND is the movement of energy through substances in longitudinal waves.  ELECTRICAL ENERGY is the movement of electrons. Lightning and electricity are examples.
  • 12. Energy Fundamentals Forms of Energy Energy is found in different forms, such as light, heat, sound, and motion. There are many forms of energy, but they can all be put into two categories: kinetic and potential.

  • 14. Energy Fundamentals Important information conservation of energy : The law of conservation of energy says that energy is neither created nor destroyed. When we use energy, it doesn’t disappear. We change it from one form of energy into another. Energy Efficiency Energy efficiency is the amount of useful energy you get from a system. A perfect energy-efficient machine would change all the energy put in it into useful work nonrenewable energy sources. Coal, petroleum, natural gas, propane, and uranium are nonrenewable energy sources. They are used to make electricity, heat our homes, move our cars, and manufacture all kinds of products. These energy sources are called nonrenewable because their supplies are limited. Petroleum, for example, was formed millions of years ago from the remains of ancient sea plants and animals. We can’t make more crude oil deposits in a short time.
  • 15. Energy Fundamentals Sources of Energy nonrenewable energy sources. Coal, petroleum, natural gas, propane, and uranium are nonrenewable energy sources. They are used to make electricity, heat our homes, move our cars, and manufacture all kinds of products. These energy sources are called nonrenewable because their supplies are limited. Petroleum, for example, was formed millions of years ago from the remains of ancient sea plants and animals. We can’t make more crude oil deposits in a short time. Renewable energy sources include biomass, geothermal energy, hydropower, solar energy, and wind energy. They are called renewable because they are replenished in a short time. Day after day, the sun shines, the wind blows, and the rivers flow. We use renewable energy sources mainly to make electricity

  • 17. Energy FundamentalsOrigin of the Concept of Energy The concept of energy was developed in the middle of the 19th century. Scientists and philosophers looked for – the comprehensive reason behind many phenomena – a never changing characteristic in the world which would constitute a hidden common background for constant changes Around 1840 they discovered the characteristic within the overall global system that never changes. They called this characteristic Energy
  • 18. Energy Fundamentals The Conservation of Energy Principle Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, but only transformed from one form of energy into another.
  • 19. Energy Fundamentals System A system is a region in space that contains an amount of matter and is separated from the environment even if only in an abstract or spiritual sense. This borderline is called system boundary. A system is in a state that can be defined and reproduced if all characteristics have been identified. Systems can be closed: Only heat and work can pass through the system boundary, Or open: Also matter can pass beyond the system boundary.
  • 20. Energy Fundamentals HeatHeat: A type of a system’s internal energy, which changes according to temperature differences.Units:Calorie ( The amount of heat needed to warm up 1g of water by 1°K.Joule: SI unit (the mechanical energy used to increase the temperature of 2 kg of water by 1°K).

  • 23. Energy Fundamentals ThermodynamicsThermodynamics is the science of the interrelationship between work and heat on the one hand and the internal energy of a system.
  • 24. Energy Fundamentals The Main Theorems of Thermodynamics1st Main Theorem of Thermodynamics:The energy of an isolated system remains constant, can neither be created out of nothing, nor can itbe destroyed, it can only be converted from one forminto another.2nd Main Theorem of Thermodynamics:If no energy is introduced into a system nor removedfrom it, in all energy conversions the potential energy ofthe resulting state is lower than that of the initial state.
  • 25. Energy Fundamentals First Law of Thermodynamics The first law of thermodynamics is the application of the conservation of energy principle to heat and thermodynamic processes: The first law makes use of the key concepts of internal energy, heat, and system work. It is used extensively in the discussion of heat engines. The standard unit for all these quantities would be the joule, although they are sometimes expressed in calories or BTU. 25
  • 26. Energy Fundamentals It is typical for chemistry texts to write the first law as ΔU=Q+W. It is the same law, of course - the thermodynamic expression of the conservation of energy principle. It is just that W is defined as the work done on the system instead of work done by the system. 26
  • 27. Energy Fundamentals Enthalpy Four quantities called "thermodynamic potentials" are useful in the chemical thermodynamics of reactions and non-cyclic processes. They are internal energy, the enthalpy, the Helmholtz free energy and the Gibbs free energy. Enthalpy is defined by H = U + PV where P and V are the pressure and volume, and U is internal energy. Enthalpy is then a measurable state variable, since it is defined in terms of three other precisely definable state variables. It is somewhat parallel to the first law of thermodynamics for a constant pressure system 27
  • 28. Energy Fundamentals Internal Energy Internal energy is defined as the energy associated with the random, disordered motion of molecules. - For example, a room temperature glass of water sitting on a table has no apparent energy, either potential or kinetic . But on the microscopic scale it is a seething mass of high speed molecules traveling at hundreds of meters per second. If the water were tossed across the room, this microscopic energy would not necessarily be changed when we superimpose an ordered large scale motion on the water as a whole. U is the most common symbol used for internal energy 28
  • 29. Energy Fundamentals Internal energy consists of - thermal energy - chemical binding energy - potential energy of atomic nuclei - interactions with electric and magnetic dipoles

  • 43. Energy Fundamentals Energy Flow, Heat Transfer Heat transfer occurs in three ways, convection, conduction and radiation, tell the system reach to Equilibrium
  • 44. Energy Fundamentals Conduction: When you give heat to an object the kinetic energy of the atoms at that point increases and they move more rapidly. Molecules or atoms collide to each other randomly and during this collision they transfer some part of their energy. With the same way, all energy transferred to the end of the object until it reaches thermal balance. As you can see from the picture, atoms at the bottom of the object first gain energy, their kinetic energies increase, they start to move and vibrate rapidly and collide other atoms and transfer heat. Conduction is commonly seen in solids and a little bit in liquids. In conduction, energy transfer is slow with respect to convection and radiation. Metals are good conductors of heat and electricity 44
  • 45. Energy Fundamentals Formula to calculate the conductivity gradient for a given system: q = - kA (Δ T/Δ n) Where Δ T/Δ n is the temperature gradient in the direction of area A, and k is the thermal conductivity constant obtained by experimentation in W/m.K. 45
  • 46. Energy Fundamentals Convection: n liquids and gases, molecular bonds are weak with respect to solids. When you heat liquids or gases, atoms or molecules which gain energy move upward, since their densities decrease with the increasing temperature. All heated atoms and molecules move upward and cooler ones sink to the bottom. This circulation continues until the system reaches thermal balance. This type of heat transfer does not work in solids because molecular bonds are not weak as in the case of fluids. Heat transfer is quick with respect to conduction 46
  • 47. Energy FundamentalsConvection Convection occurs when a solid state body exchanges heat with an adjacent liquid or gas (air). The movement of liquids or gases supports the convection. Newton: Q = h A (TSurface-TEnvironment)
  • 48. Energy Fundamentals Radiation: It is the final method of heat transfer. Different from conduction and convection, radiation does not need medium or particles to transfer heat. As it can be understood from the name, it is a type of electromagnetic wave and shows the properties of waves like having speed of light and traveling in a straight line. In addition to, it can travel also in vacuum just like sun lights. Radiation is a good method of transferring heat, in microwave ovens or some warming apparatus radiation is used as a method of heat transfer. 48
  • 49. Energy FundamentalsRadiation Thermal radiation does not need a thermal transfer medium. Radiation energy when meeting a surface will:  reflect  absorb  transfer (semi-transparent materials) Stefan Boltzman Law:
