It has potential energy if it is any higher than its surroundings - if it has the potential of falling down.
Yes. It has higher intermolecular potential energy.
similar to potential energy, water flows down a gradient from higher potential to lower potential. Higher potential is generally in the soil/roots and lower potential is at the leaves/atmosphere. The water has potential to flow down the gradient
If you mean hydraulic energy, you don't really "convert water to energy". If the water is in a higher position, it has more energy (potential energy); when it falls down, this potential energy is converted to some other type of energy.
anything will flow from higher property to lower property... for eg:-water flows from higher level to lower level. in scientific terms, water flows from higher potential energy to lower potential energy. in electricity there is a term electric potential. so +ve charge will flow from higher electric potential to lower electric potential.
no, Osmosis is the movement of water from a higher water potential to a low water potential. This requires no energy. Active transport requires energy and it involves substances moving from a lower concentration to a higher.
No, water will move from higher water potential to lower water potential.
the water loses gravitational potential energy and gains kinetic energy as it falls
Both are forms of energy. Potential energy is the available energy that could be used and Kinetic energy is the energy actually being used. Think of Potential energy as being a high cliff with water on top. The higher the cliff the more energy available. If no water is falling though, there is noting being used, But the potential for falling water is still there. Kinetic energy is the water that actually falls.
It can't. However, if you have water at a higher elevation (higher than the lowest possible elevation), it has potential energy; you can make that move machines by having the water fall down.
Generally when water is used as a source of energy it is either the kinetic energy of the flowing water or the potential energy of the water as it changed height that was used as the energy source. In both cases it is gravity that is the ultimate driving force that makes the water move (for kinetic energy) or is the source of the potential energy - which is recovered as the water moves from higher to lower.
That depends on how the electrical energy is generated. Here is one example: The Sun makes water evaporate; when it rains on a continent, it has higher position, and thus higher potential energy, than in the ocean. This potential energy makes turbines move; these move generators, that convert the potential energy into electrical energy.
Osmosis is the net movement of water particles from a area of higher water potential to an area of lower water potential and this does not require any extra energy input like in active transport. Therefore energy is conserved.
Water has gravitational potential energy if it is at a higher elevation (for instance, above sea level). This usually happens as a result of water evaporating, and then raining down at higher elevations.
The water in a reservoir or lake, at a higher level than the water turbine, has potential energy. When released to flow down to the turbine it gains kinetic energy due to the movement of mass, then this is turned to mechanical energy in the turbine and finally to electrical energy in the generator
I believe yes because each peanut has potential energy and 4 peanuts have more potential energy than just one.
It really depends on the type of potential energy, but basically, just keeping an object in a high energy position, against some force, will store the potential energy. For example, water has more potential energy when it is in a higher position; typically it would be kept in a high position by a dam, until the energy is needed.
The potential energy in this system is the column of water stored behind the dam. This water has the potential to have its energy turned into electric power.
The "raw material" is the water, or more precisely, the gravitational potential energy in the water. In other words, the water must be at a higher position, and have the capability to be channeled to a lower position.Such water can be found in rivers, lakes, and artificial reservoirs.
Potential energy What kind of potential energy?
Anything that moves has kinetic energy. Water may also have potential energy - if it is at a higher level and you have the possibility of making it fall down. And running water can be used to make electrical energy.
Water is not energy; water is a substance.
is water real
The raised water, which stores the energy, has gravitational potential energy.While it is moving, the water has kinetic energy.
Its a bad example, but some potential energy is involved. You convert chemical energy from the fuel to kinetic energy and heat energy. The kinetic energy drives you into the water. There the car sinks because of the height difference and gravity. This is a form of potential energy. A better example would be a person driving up and down a mountain. When driving up a mountain you store kinetic energy into potential energy. On the way down you regain the potential energy you stored, which results in a higher kinetic energy when driving down.
