  • Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC)

    2594 Words  | 6 Pages

    Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is the process of converting the ocean waters temperature difference at different depths into usable energy. From the solar heated upper depths of the ocean to the cooler depths below 2,000 feet a 40 degree temperature difference must be maintained to generate electricity. This is a relatively new and unheard of source of energy.

  • Human Development and the Importance of Wind Energy Conversion

    575 Words  | 2 Pages

    Human Development and the Importance of Wind Energy Conversion For human development to continue, we will ultimately need to find sources of renewable or virtually inexhaustible energy.

  • Obtaining Zinc Oxide from Calamine

    896 Words  | 2 Pages

    Introduction Calamine is a mineral containing zinc carbonate (ZnCO₃) On heating it decomposes as: [IMAGE]ZnCO₃ ZnO + CO₂ (C = 12, 0 = 16, Zn = 65) This equation allows you to calculate a theoretical conversion of calamine into zinc oxide. As when using the theoretical conversion; [IMAGE]ZnCO₃ ZnO + CO₂ [IMAGE]65+12+48 65+16 + 12+32 [IMAGE]125 81 + 44 This means that one mole of calamine weighs 125g and when heated it produces 81g of zinc oxide and 44g of carbon dioxide
