There is a diverse range of chemical groups and reactions that give rise to the exquisite photochromic effect. For instance, cis-trans isomerizations or geometric isomerism, where the functional group of a molecule is rotated into a different position or orientation, retaining the same molecular formula. Then there are pericyclic reactions, following UV exposure, the molecule switches to form B by the rearrangement of bonds. The Spiropyrans, the most prevalent class of photochromes, are a good example. When exposed to high energy UV, the sp³-hybridized carbon-oxygen bond in a Spiropyran breaks and opens the ring such that the carbon becomes sp² hybridized.
Boli Monger Danny Bellinger English 1101, 60499 July 11, 2017 Compare and Contrast Solar energy is better than Coal In today’s world energy is one of the essential things that we all need in our daily life. We human being use energy for everything from doing simple work at home to doing big work, like sending astronauts into space. There are various sources of energy, among them, the healthiest and environmentally safe is solar energy. Solar energy is defined as a renewable form of power or heat which is naturally produced by the sun light. According to the Energy Information Administration (solar vs coal 2), 15 years ago, the electricity industry made a huge shift towards renewable sources of energy because of its cheap availability and increasing popularity.
The ozone layer is what protects us from harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun. The average solar panel produces around 1,000 watts of energy daily (Zientara 1). With the average energy usage per home being at 30,000 watts daily (Richardson 1), this would mean someone considering the switch to solar energy would need 30 solar panels for their home to be able to use appliances as normal. While it may seem impractical for the everyday person, it would be a great deal for someone with a lot of land. Energy bills would be greatly reduced, and they would have the satisfaction of knowing they are making a difference.
Introduction Photosynthesis is the process whereby chlorophyll containing cells in green plants convert incident light to chemical energy and synthesise organic compounds from inorganic compounds (Great Illustrated Dictionary, 1984). It could also be presented by this equation (6CO2 + 6H2O C6H12O6 + 6O2), all in the presence of sunlight (Mader, 2010). The word photosynthesis means “putting together with light” (Ashley, 2000). In order for plants to photosynthesis, a source of light energy is needed. This energy is normally obtained from the sun.
Spectroscopy deals with the production, measurement and interpretation of spectra due to interaction of electromagnetic radiation with matter which is absorbed or emitted by atoms of a sample. This absorption or emission occurs when the atoms of the sample move from one energy level to another in presence of light. In other words, it is a science which deals how light interacts with matter. When atoms or molecules absorb electromagnetic energy, the incoming energy promotes the molecular system to a higher energy level. Electrons are promoted to higher orbitals by ultraviolet or visible light, vibrations due to infrared light and rotations due to microwaves.
Some lamps only need a simple resistor to control power. LEDs need a low power resistor for current control. The resistor is not acceptable for larger power lamps because it creates a lot of waste heat and therefore reduces efficiency. Electronic ballasts usually change the frequency of power to a lamp from 50/60 Hz to 20 kHz+. Electronic ballasts are usually viewed as being more efficient because by running a lamp at a higher frequency you get more efficacy or brightness from the lamp above 10 kHz.
Last, the slope of the white LED light was -0.00225372 ppt/min. The blue light had the largest rate of decreasing slope. This supports the original hypothesis. Out of the lights that were chosen, the blue light was most efficient because it contained the ride out of energy too aid photosynthesis. Infrared was the least efficient.
Concentrator solar power concentrates light energy from the sun on a smaller surface to boil a liquid. The steam then spins turbines to generate electricity. This is might be cheaper than using photovoltaics because you don’t need to store the energy for overnight. The thermal storage allows for electricity to be generated for up to 24 hours. There are many types of technologies to do this, for example parabolic trough, compact linear Fresnel reflectors, Stirling solar dish and solar power tower.
For example, absorb incoming solar radiation to moderate the Earth temperature or stored as heat energy. The heat that being absorbed by the ocean is mostly during winter and it cools during summer. This could be done by the ocean through moving always then distribute the heat around the globe. The earth was covered almost 70% of it with the average depth of 12200 feet approximately 3720 meter. While, the deepest point of it are 36198 feet or approximately 11 033 meter in the western Pacific, Mariana Trench.
• Initial cost. • Inputs and Byproducts. • Environmental safety factors. Each of these sources has exclusive characteristics which manipulate how and where they are used among these sources. 1.1 Wind Energy System Wind is air in motion, it is due to uneven heating of earth surface by the sun rays.
