What is the science behind tidalwave energy?
Tidal wave energy is a form of hydro power that converts the energy of tides into electricity or other useful forms of power. Energy from the oceans tides can deliver more predictable supply compared to wind energy or solar power.

The science behind hydroelectric power includes elements of physics. Given an existing dam with a reservoir and a power station, let's follow the action. Water is allowed to b…uild up behind a dam. This creates potential energy. Releasing the water and directing it through turbines converts the potential energy into kinetic energy. This energy, which is mechanical energy, spins the turbines. Call that the "first stage" of the process. The turbines are coupled to generators, and the mechanical energy of the turbines is converted into electromagnetic energy in those generators. The electromagnetic energy (or just "electricity" if you prefer) is routed to a transformer bank to step it up in voltage. The higher voltages allow for less power loss during transit, and the energy is transported to points of use. There, it is stepped down to relatively "safe" voltages and routed out to electrical equipment and devices.
light = enregy..... heat = energy...simple.....you can make nano cells that do these also nano cells that can create energy by sound vibrations... i need some science "geeks" …to help me devolop easy advances in these areas... if your interested contact me @ email@example.com .....also have a few ways of making free electricity
It has to do with the hair strands natural disulfide bonds being reduced and then re-oxidized after you have set hair in the desired curlers so that when the sulfi…de bonds reform they are in the shape that you want them to be.
Wind energy is used for electricty, wind turbine, windmills, and a wind machine
what is the science behind geothermal energy
The science behind nuclear energy involves getting the atomic nuclei of atoms to undergo changes and release energy. We know that setting conditions involves finding materials… that will, under the right circumstances, undergo fission or fusion and "rearrange" their atomic nuclei. The fission or fusion reactions release energy that we can use. Currently we can only use fission effectively to generate energy. (We left out thermonuclear fusion weapons.) Let's look a bit further. If we gather some fissionable material like uranium, we can set up a machine in which we can cause it to undergo fission. A nuclear reactor is that machine. If we permit a critical mass to be achieved, a fission reaction will begin, and we can sustain this reaction to continuously release nuclear energy. Most of the useful energy released in the nuclear reactions appears in the form of heat, and we can pump coolant around inside the reactor, we can collect that heat. The thermal energy can be used to boil water to make steam, and the steam can be used to spin conventional steam turbines. Nuclear energy is converted into both thermal and mechanical energy as atoms "break up" in the fission reactions. The mechanical energy is converted into thermal energy in the fuel elements, and that heat is carried off via the coolant to steam generators. The thermal energy is converted into mechanical energy in the turbines, and the turbines spin generators. The mechanical energy of the spinning generator is converted into electromagnetic energy, and we see that as electricity that we can distribute to points of use.
maybe that it generates electricity
i think its DALUYONG
The highest tidal wave ever recorded was 1,720 feet tall, and occurred in 1958 in Alaska.
The shadow is lack of light which is caused by obstacles between the "light generator" (like the sun) and the shadowed surface.
what is the science behind this resource/type of energy
it came from the remains of animals such as dinosaurs millions of years ago
Well, whatever is stood or sat behind the apple at the time..Is the science behind it..Because everything is science. So really anything that is behind it is science. (:
Honestly I do not know what the science is behind these lights but i thought it would be a good idea to at least give the question an answer
Fusion is the combination of two atomic nuclei into one, while fission is the separation of one nuclei into two. Nuclear power plants use fission, where a particle (neurton) i…s shot at an atomic nuclei to break it apart. In the breaking apart process some of the mass of the original atom is converted into energy (e=mc2). This energy (heat) is used to heat water, expanding into steam that turns a turbine.
The Sun heats and evaporates water. Some of this water falls as rain and is collected behind dams. An amount of this water is released through passages in the dam and travels …downhill and gains kinetic energy. The water then passes through a device such as a turbine which spins. Energy is extracted from this spinning and is used to make machines work, usually by generating electricity. Sometimes the energy is used directly as in a water wheel to run machines. So your answer is solar power, condensation to make rain, construction to build dams, engineering to develop turbines and water wheels, electrical engineering to transport electricity, and science to make everything work at the usage site.
This would be a combination of scientific disciplines which would depend on the the type of bio energy you were trying to harness. These would include engineering , biolog…y, physics, geology, meterology, mathematics, electronics amongst others.
