Importance of Generating Renewable Energy

- Many nations use energy generated from burning fossil fuels like oil, coal and natural gas. However, with the rapid growth of population, the demand for energy is increasing and this means burning fossil fuels to create energy generates emissions such as carbon dioxide and monoxide which in turn affects our environment, health and warms our planet. The long term use of fossil fuels is not viable, therefore, to combat the dependency on fossil fuels, renewable energy sources must be adopted to maintain the economic growth and development and to maintain the environment and prevents more risks of global warming....   [tags: fossil fuels, energy, health risk]

Metabolic Costs Of Generating Force

- ENERGETCS OF BIPEDAL RUNNING 1. METABOLIC COST OF GENERATING FORCE Summary Similarly sized bipeds and quadrupeds use nearly the same amount of metabolic energy to run, despite dramatic differences in morphology and running mechanics. It has been shown that the rate of metabolic energy use in quadrupedal runners and bipedal hoppers can be predicted from just body weight and time available to generate force as indicated by the foot ground contact. We tested whether this link between running mechanics and energetics also applied to running bipeds....   [tags: essays research papers]
