Example text

It comes from the sun. Plants capture the sun’s energy during photosynthesis. In a complex set of chemical reactions, plants synthesize a wide variety of food molecules from three basic “ingredients”: carbon dioxide from the air, water from the soil, and solar energy from the heavens. Solar energy that drives photosynthetic reactions is captured and stored in the chemical bonds of organic food molecules. When food molecules are consumed by us, or any other animal for C 17 Contrary to what many think, renewable energy is not a new, unproven invention of modern society.

But its regeneration is taking place at such a painfully slow rate that it is meaningless. Put another way, contemporary production can never replenish the massive supplies that were produced over long periods of time many millions of years ago. Because of this, coal, oil, natural gas, and the like are essentially finite. When they’re gone, they’re gone. So now you know two basic facts about energy: energy comes in many forms, and all forms of energy broadly fit into two general categories: renewable and nonrenewable.

To calculate the amount of work performed, scientists use a very simple equation: Work = Force x Distance In this case work = 100 pounds x 10 feet = 1,000 foot-pounds of work. Foot-pounds isn’t a term that comes in very handy in most home energy applications, but it helps you peer more deeply into energy. Let’s go a bit deeper into a realm of more useful energy measurements by examining the rate at which work is performed. Physicists define the rate at which you or a machine performs work as power.
