  • Peltier’s Effect in Theromdynamic Cooling

    882 Words  | 2 Pages

    THERMOELECTRIC COOLING In thermoelectric cooling Peltier’s effect is used to cause heat flux between the junctions of different types of materials. A Peltier heater/cooler transfers heat from one side of the device to the other by consuming electrical energy. This device is also known as a Peltier device, Peltier heat pump, solid state refrigerator, or thermoelectric cooler (TEC). Since there are more economical and easy ways of achieving cooling, Peltier’s devices are mostly used for cooling purposes

  • Urban Heat Islands

    528 Words  | 2 Pages

    exposed soil exists, the majority of the sun's energy is absorbed by urban structures and asphalt. Hence, during warm daylight hours, less evaporative cooling in cities allows surface temperatures to rise higher than in rural areas. Additional city heat is given off by vehicles and factories, as well as by industrial and domestic heating and cooling units. At night, the solar energy, which is stored as vast quantities of heat in city buildings and roads, is released slowly into the city. The dissipation

    last interglacial period and observe what the conditions were like especially in respect to the THC. I will look at how the last interglacial led to the last great Ice Age, and the sudden demise of that Ice Age, as well as the nearly equally sudden cooling that occurred in the Younger Dryas about 12,000 years ago before the warming resumed in earnest shortly thereafter. In the final part of this paper I will look at two different predictions of what could happen as a result of the melting of the North

    such as cancer or Aids. The following state the current laws for euthanasia in the Northern Territory but only recently these laws have been overturned by the Commonwealth government. These laws include; (a) A patient had to make a request, (b) Cooling off period, (c) 3 independent doctors had to agree being: (1) patient s doctor, (2) psychiatrist, if not suffering from any mental disease, (3) Specialist in the area of disease suffered by the patient e.g.: oncologist (cancer specialist), neurologist

  • Adaptations of Mammals to Arid Australian Environments

    3169 Words  | 7 Pages

    many mammals that live in the desert obtain much or all of their water from the food they consume. The reduced water intake is partially balanced through concentrated urine and dry faeces. Evaporative cooling helps to regulate temperature. To limit the water lost through evaporative cooling, mammals are nocturnal, have light coloration and other body features to help dissipate heat, and use microenvironments to reduce heat gain. This is only a short list of the many amazing adaptations Australian

  • The Adventures at Hyco Lake

    1342 Words  | 3 Pages

    on the house, so my dad decided that Hyco Lake was the perfect spot. Hyco Lake was constructed in the 1960's by Carolina Power and Light as a cooling reservoir for the steam electric generating plant. The Lake was filled in 1965 after Hurricane Hilda came through and filled the reservoir. The power plant located on Hyco Lake heats the water, but cooling units were built in the early 70's to keep the water temperature down. However, near my house on the islands of South Hyco, the water is heated

  • Investigation of how Changing the Volume of Water in a Container Affects Its Rate of Heat Loss

    container. What I already know: I already know that the larger the volume of water there is the less heat loss occurs. I can tell this from my previous pilot experiment where I investigated, if the volume of water in a beaker affects its rate of cooling. In this experiment my conclusion was the beaker with the larger volume has no more heat energy to give out compared to the beaker with the smaller volume. Prediction: I predict that the increase of water volume in the beaker will affect

  • Constructing a Greenhouse Window

    high, and the windows need therefore to be opened. This will allow the temperature to drop back to the correct level. Different numbers of degrees to which the window is open have different cooling effects. For example, if the window is open by 50 degrees, then there is probably a more rapid cooling effect upon the greenhouse than if the window was 10 degrees open. Thus, it is important to know how many degrees the window on a greenhouse is open. It could however be very time consuming for

  • The Shifting of Pangea

    834 Words  | 2 Pages

    continents had drifted apart, but he couldn’t explain how they had drifted apart. Another problem was that there was a theory already in place called the “Contraction Theory”. This theory stated that the Earth was once a molten ball and in the process of cooling, the surface cracked and folded up on itself. One of the problems with this theory was that it suggests that all mountain ranges were the same age, and this could not be true. Wegner’s explanation was that continents shifted and these shifting plates

  • Physics of Cooling Lava

    in that part of Iceland, and was the base for a large fishing fleet that produces a significant part of Iceland’s GNP. As the lava threatened to overrun the town and close off the harbor, a decision was made to try to slow and divert the lava by cooling it with sea water. The idea was initially scoffed at, but when small initial efforts seemed to have an effect the scale of the operation was increased. Over seven months eight million cubic yards of sea water were pumped onto the lava flow; they cooled

  • The Physics of Cooling Techniques

    2370 Words  | 5 Pages

    Second Law of Thermodynamics dictates that cooling something will take effort (sorry, no spontaneously cool sodas). Different techniques have been developed to address this issue, each having its own limitations and ideal uses. The most commonly used method of cooling is with vapor-compression cycles, because it is fairly easy to construct a cooling device employing this method and the cost is low. In fact, conventional refrigerators use this method of cooling to keep your leftovers and drinks chilled
