Description
Energy: introduction to the basics: Energy is one of the most fundamental parts of our universe. We use energy to do work. Energy lights our cities. Energy powers our vehicles, trains, planes and rockets. Energy warms our homes, cooks our food, plays our music, gives us pictures on television. Energy from the sun gives us light during the day. Energy is defined as "the ability to do work." When we eat, our bodies transform the energy stored in the food into energy to do work. When we run or walk, we "burn" food energy in our bodies. But where does energy come from? There are many sources of energy. In this program we'll look at the energy that makes our world work. There are eight different forms of energy which are heat, light, sound, chemical, electrical, magnetic, nuclear and mechanical energy.
Engineering: fueling a greener planet: Revolutionary changes are taking place in the automobile industry. The standard petroleum gasoline fueled engine has some new competition from gas-electric hybrids, electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, natural gas vehicles and even some automobiles that get some of their power from the Sun.
Chemistry: battery technology innovations: The battery has been in use since the early 1800s but the last twenty years has seen the most incredible growth in portable energy storage technology. Today, batteries provide power and on-demand energy to much of our modern high-tech world from the small back-up battery in your computer to units large enough to power cars, trucks and space stations. This program will emphasize lithium-ion technology, as well as innovations in the storage and transfer of energy.
Science & engineering: solar energy: This program demonstrates how the power of the Sun is captured, transferred and stored to provide a multitude of uses. Learn some of the ways we use the sun to heat or cool our homes, provide transportation and make electricity.
Physics & engineering solar energy: Solar energy--power from the sun--is a vast and inexhaustible resource. In the broadest sense, solar energy supports all life on Earth and is the basis for almost every form of energy we use. This program explains the three primary technologies by which solar energy is commonly harnessed: photovoltaic (PV), which directly convert light to electricity; concentrating solar power (CSP), which uses heat from the sun (thermal energy) to drive utility-scale, electric turbines; and heating and cooling systems, which collect thermal energy to provide hot water and air conditioning.
Bio fuels: What do animal dung in Israel and leftover cooking oils in North America have in common? Both are being used as bio fuels for powering industrial equipment and motor vehicles. Combine this with efforts to process coconut oil from Uganda and soy from Argentina and you have the hopeful beginnings for fossil fuel independence.
Energy: biofuels from plants & algae: Our society has increasing demands for energy and fuel, so scientists are constantly working to increase the reliability and performance of renewable energy technology. A small percentage of renewable energy is created with biofuels. Common examples are ethanol and biodiesel. Ethanol is made from fermenting biomass, such as grasses, wood chips, poplar trees and select agricultural waste. Fermentation is the breakdown of sugar producing alcohol and carbon dioxide. This is the same process that yeasts and bacteria perform in making bread, beer, wine, and some cultured foods. Micro-algae are single-cell, photosynthetic organisms known for their rapid growth and high energy content, and are becoming an increasingly viable source in the production of liquid transportation biofuels. Using the sun's energy, these microorganisms combine carbon dioxide with water, creating biomass more efficiently and rapidly than terrestrial plants. Oil-rich micro-algae strains are capable of producing the feedstock for a number of transportation fuels (biodiesel, "green" diesel, gasoline, and jet fuel) while mitigating the effects of carbon dioxide released from sources such as power plants. This program investigates new technologies at algae facilites, and explains the processes behind their cutting-edge micro-algae to fuel processes.
