By radial force, we can assume you mean centripetal force Centripetal force = (Mass)(Radius)(Angular velocity)2

### How engine works with electricity?

I assume that your question is how you can use an engine to obtain electricity. If so, the idea is the following: You burn a fuel inside the combustion chamber of the engine. What this will do is to convert the chemical energy of the fuel molecules into thermal energy. You can then use some kind of rotor (turbine) that converts this thermal energy into mechanical energy by rotating the turbine. The mechanical energy is transmitted via an axle that connects the turbine to an electric generator. Simplifying, a generator comprises of a magnet that rotates inside a coil and electricity is then generated inside the coil of this generator via induction. That's how you obtain electricity from a combustion engine. I hope I understood your question correctly.

### Using the known distance earth is from the sun calculate What is the speed that earth is moving through space in relation to the sun?

To calculate this speed, you need some more numbers, not just the distance from Earth to Sun. You need to know:* The gravitational constant * The distance from Earth to Sun * The mass of the Sun You DON'T need the mass of the Earth. Assume any mass; you can just call the mass of the Earth "m". Then calculate an expression for the gravitational attraction between Earth and Sun. Divide by the mass of the Earth, and you get a centripetal acceleration. Assuming a circular orbit for simplicity, the centripetal acceleration must be just this force. Use the formula for the centripetal acceleration along a circle (a = v squared / radius). (Don't forget to convert the distance from Earth to Sun, to meters!) Solve for "v".

Well, the turbine in a dam kills salmon and makes it almost impossible for them to try to get through. But if you're talking about windmill turbines, I have no idea. I'd assume that birds are smart enough to realize that they're dangerous, but I don't really know.

### Where is radial stress maximum in a rotating body?

The previous answer supplied was wrong. First, let us clarify the question. 1. We are going to assume we have an axially symmetric object rotating about its axis of symmetry. 2. The object has uniform density. 3. Stress at any one point is radial only and only due to the mass along the same radial line. 4. Gravity is not part of this. The problem then is equivalent to a chain rotating with one end tied to a fixed axis and its length extending perpendicular to the axis of rotation. The force experienced by any link in the chain is due to the sum of the centripetal forces of all links further out. Thus the closest link, or the link on the axis of rotation, feels the greatest stress. So, the previous answer was correct in identifying the location but incorrect in the reasoning.
