What converts electrical energy into another form of energy?
An electric motor is used to convert electrical energy into kinetic energy, but some of the electrical energy in this process is lost to thermal energy. When a lamp converts electrical energy into light energy, some electrical energy is lost to thermal energy.
What is the conversion of energy called?
Energy conversion is also known as energy transformation.
What can convert electrical energy?
Electrical energy can be converted to mechanical energy, light energy, heat energy, etc. Chemical energy can be converted to electrical energy.
How is energy converted into electricity?
In a turbine generator, a moving fluid—water, steam, combustion gases, or air—pushes a series of blades mounted on a rotor shaft. The force of the fluid on the blades spins/rotates the rotor shaft of a generator. The generator, in turn, converts the mechanical (kinetic) energy of the rotor to electrical energy.
What is conversion of energy give two examples?
Examples of Day-to-Day Energy Transformations
Chemical Energy is converted to Electrical Energy (stove), Kinetic Energy (car), Electricity (power plant), and Mechanical Energy (space shuttle). Electrical Energy is converted to Kinetic Energy. Electricity is converted to Light (light bulb) and Sound and Light (TV).
