Does an electric heater do the opposite of a thermocouple?
In effect it does. Electricity applied to the heater produces heat. Heat applied to the thermocouple produces electricity. ...
Asked in Biology
How is the energy source used to produce electricity?
Most energy sources that are used to electricity are first generating heat. The heat is then used to power a turbine which produces electricity. ...
Asked in Physics
Friction produces what when two objects are rubbed together?
Heat and/or static electricity?
How are the conduction of heat and the conduction of electricity related?
ONLY VIA THE ENERGY EQUATION. Heat is not really conducted. Light is being conducted which produces Heat. Light x Heat = Heat Energy m/Z x A^2Z^3 = m(AZ)^2 And the conduction of Electricity produces Heat Energy m(AZ)^2 EinsteinGravitydotcom ...
Asked in Nuclear Fission
How is electricity produced inside a nuclear plant?
Nuclear fission produces heat energy that produces steam The steam spins the turbines that spins electric generators and hence producing electricity. ...
Asked in Science, Nuclear Fission
How nuclear fission is used to produce electricity?
Nuclear fission produces heat, which is used to heat water and make steam. This steam is then used in steam turbines to create electricity. ...
Asked in Technology
What is the wasteful energy change that takes place in the wires of an electromagnet?
I believe it is the heat generated by the resistance of the wire to the flow of electricity that produces heat, which results in the loss of electromotive force, or electricity ...
Asked in Animal Life
What has to happen to nuclear before it cam be used to generate electricity?
The nuclear reaction produces heat The heat is used to make steam The steam makes the turbines spin The turbines make electricity ...
Asked in Physics, Energy, Electrical Engineering
How do you convert heat energy into electrical energy?
Heat water, steam from water drives a turbine, turbine drives generator, generator produces electricity. ...
How is electricity generated by uranium?
When uranium is brought together in sufficient quantities, the radiation it naturally gives off produces a chain reaction (in which the nuclear particles produces by the breakdown of uranium nuclei interact with other nuclei and cause them to break down as well). This reaction produces a tremendous amount of heat as a by-product. This heat is used to heat a quantity of water, and the resulting steam drives turbines which produce electricity. ...
Asked in Home Electricity
When electricity flows through the metal filament of a light bulb electrical energy is converted to?
Heat, which then produces light.
Asked in Fossil Fuels
What is the energy of fuels that produces electricity?
The energy in fuel that produces electricity is chemical energy. By rapidly oxidizing, "burning", the carbon, hydrogen and sulfur in the fuel we produce heat. this heat is absorbed by water to produce steam to drive an engine, this engine turns an electromagnet (field rotor) inside another electromagnet (stator) to generate electricity for use. The transformation of fuel to electricity is as follows: Chemical energy to heat energy to mechanical energy to electrical energy. Only about 25% of the energy in fuel...
