A large mass of air moving over the landscape represents aconsiderable amount of energy. By building devices that will spinwhen the wind blows, it is possible to harness some …of that energy.Most modern wind turbines are several hundred feet high, withpropellers that have 3 blades, each one about 150 long.
Wind energy spins turbines producing electricity.
Wind energy is associated with the movement of atmospheric air which is converted into kinetic energy. This energy has been used for sailing, irrigation, and more recently for… power generation.
\nThese are generally called wind turbines or just wind towers. I think these are also called windmills but perhaps that term is out of favor since it seems to be in declinin…g usage.
Wind gets its energy from the coriollis effect.Type it in on google.
Because a majority of land-based wind turbines are set out in open land (much of it leased from farmers) the arrays became known as "wind farms" and collecting the energy gene…rated was popularly termed "wind farming". Wind Farms
from Texas up through North Dakota is a region (plains) unlike anywhere else on earth, where the consistent high winds have the potential, if tapped by wind energy conversion …systems (wind turbines), to produce a lot of electricity. although the term is applied relatively, in reality, the Midwest wind resource offers more energy than Saudi Arabia's 10 million barrels a day. the typical conversion is to use GGE (gallon of gas equivalent) which equals about 33 kWh. However, 10M barrels of oil equals about a million wind turbines spinning.
kinetic energy. wind has kinetic energy, which turns the blades of the turbine. the turbine then has kinetic energy, this is converted into electricity
Because neither burns fossil fuel to create energy, and neither causes pollution.
The Sun. A fraction of the suns energy heats the air. Warm air rises higher into the atmosphere and cooler, more dense, air moves in to replace it causing the wind.
The conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy is called the WIND... ENERGY. Have to add the ellipsis for it to work.
A windmill was a structure that used wind to power a mill (or sometimes to pump water), and a wind turbine is a structure that uses wind to create electrical power.

Wind energy is kinetic energy, the energy of the moving air. The original source is the Sun. The sun powers our weatherpatterns, which is what make the air that spins the tur…binesmove.
Wind energy is not called solar energy. Solar energy is the energy from the sun, while wind energy is just wind energy.
In Wind Power
The tool that is used to create wind energy is called a windturbine.
In Renewable Energy
It is classed as a renewable source of energy because the sunshines during the day (even under an overcast sky) and the windblows on most days.
It is the kinetic energy in the wind, which is half the mass timesthe velocity-squared, summed up for every small element of air inthe wind.
