Energy Project

  1. 1. Energy Resources By Rodolfo Brandon Bernardino http://images.imagestate.com/Watermark/2252873.jpg
  2. 2. Nonrenewable Energy • Fossil Fuels - Coal - Oil and Natural Gas • Enrichable Uranium http://www.tamug.edu/labb/images /97%20CO2%20by%20countries% 203.gif
  3. 3. Coal • Coal is mined • Sedimentary Rock • Formed from - Underground - Dead organic mater • Coal is burned in factories to heat water that turns electric turbines.
  4. 4. Oil • Oil is found through drilling • It is used for many things: • Burned like coal in power plants • Refined to produce gasoline which is used in motor vehicles
  5. 5. Natural Gas • Collected from natural gas wells • Burned to turn turbines - Heat water and produce steam - Natural Gas/ Steam Combination Generator • Used in Fuel Cells
  6. 6. Nuclear • The uranium used is mined or milled before being processed • After processing, pellets are placed into rods which are placed into bundles. • Uranium bundles are used in Fission reactions - Fission; Splitting of uranium- 235 atom by catching a free neutron • Fusion - Two atoms collide to form one atom
  7. 7. Incineration • Trash and waste are burned • Heat produced is used to heat water • The water changes to steam and turns turbines to generate electricity
  8. 8. Inexhaustible Energy • Wind • Solar • Hydroelectric • Geothermic • Wave Energy http://www.americanprogress.org/issu es/2009/04/img/energy_graph4.jpg
  9. 9. Wind • Windmills have blades that are pushed by wind • These blades are connected to a turbine. When the blades spin, the turbine generates electricity.
  10. 10. Solar • Converted in two different ways: - Sunlight is redirected to a building to heat water…etc - Sunlight is absorbed directly through solar cells http://mindpetals.com/wp- content/images/solar-panels.jpg
  11. 11. Geothermic • Heat from inside of Earth - Tapped • May be used to heat or cool homes • Heat used to produce steam and turn turbineshttp://www.geothermalpowerplant .com/binaryplant.gif
  12. 12. Wave Energy • Waves are harnessed to produce electricity • Direct Method - Waves move a special turbine up and down • New Method - Described in picture http://www.reuk.co.uk/OtherImage s/islaywave.gif
  13. 13. Renewable Energy - Biomass
  14. 14. Linkage • http://www.bydesign.com/fossilfuels/links/h tml/natural_gas/gas_get.html • http://www.naturalgas.org/overview/uses_ eletrical.asp
