Why is energy transfer processes inefficient?

  Energy transfer can be very efficient but there is always some heat loss. For example an electric convector in your home may appear to be 100 percent efficient, but what (MORE)

Why are most chargers very inefficient?

Voltage must be changed by a transformer, and the alternating current changed to direct current by diodes. Each step has a loss of energy.

Why is converting coal into electricity inefficient?

Burning coal requires between 100 and 150% excess air for complete combustion. Excess air is the air supplied for combustion more then the air required for perfect combustio (MORE)

Why are incandescent lights considered inefficient?

Any form of electrical lighting will produce both light and heat, and with inefficient, incandescent lighting you get a higher proportion of heat rather than light, as compare (MORE)
