In order of increasing molecular energy: ice, water, steam. (Adding energy in the form of heat changes ice to water, and water to steam.)

The most common method is to heat water until it boils, and use the expansion of the steam to turn turbines.


It cannot do it the direct way. Nuclear energy makes heat and this heat can be used do heat water that drives normal turbines that make electricity.Most commonly, nuclear energy is used to boil water and produce high pressure steam. The steam is then used to turn a turbine, which turns a generator which produces electricity.


There are several way to create electricity from nuclear energy. The most common way is to generate heat from the controlled fission of 235U, releasing binding energy, using that to heat water to steam, and using the steam to spin turbines that drive generators.




The particles have most energy in particles in steam. In a gas. the particles move more freely, Therefore, there is more energy in the steam. :D LOL


The energy source in a steam engine is the heat source that converts water into steam thus creating pressure. The heat source itself can be a coal, wood, gas or petroleum burner but can also be something different like a solar panel or a nuclear reactor (most nuclear reactors are themselves steam engines-generators).


Water as steam in the gas state has the most energy compared to water in the liquid or solid state.


The most common method is to convert the heat into steam and use the steam to drive mechanical devices such as engines and turbines.


water loses it's most heat because the stored in the water gets out in steam.


No, superheated steam gives off little energy. Most of the heat given off by steam is the latent heat of condensation as it undergoes a phase change from vapor to liquid. Superheated steam could first be "desuperheated" by adding water until it reaches the saturation point, then used for heat transfer processes.


The most usual way to convert thermal energy (i.e., heat) into motion is by means of a steam engine. You boil water, the steam pushes on a piston, and the piston can then move whatever it is that you want to move.


Most coal is used in the production of electricity by burning the coal to heat water to power steam turbines that run generators.


The useful energy we get from fossil fuels and nuclear plants is heat. and heating water to make steam is about the most direct way to capture that thermal energy. Steam is used to spin turbines to turn electric power generators, and that allows us to harness the energy.


The most useful energy that coal provides is as a fuel for combustion; we have to burn it. Burning coal creats heat we can use to boil water, turning it to steam, and then we use the steam to drive turbines to make electricity.


the steam cleaners heat up the water till it boils and the water steams it sends the steam through tubes the steam is way to hot for most bacteria and it kills them


One way it to allow the heat from controlled nuclear reactions to boil water. The steam can then power steam turbines in much the same way that steam from coal or wood fired boilers can be used. In the simplest terms this is how most if not all nuclear power plants work.


it explodes, just kidding. It turns into a water vapor or most commonly steam.


When water boils, the heat converts some of the water to steam and each bubble is a steam bubble. Steam is a gas that is lighter than water, and so the bubbles rise to the surface of the water where the steam is released. As the steam cools in the air, it forms water vapor, and that is what we see. Most people call the vapor "steam", but steam is a transparent gas, like air.


A steam-powered car does run on water but it also needs the fuel to burn to heat the water into steam! Steam-cars generally used vapourised paraffin as fuel, as do most modern versions.


Some of the heat is used to produce electricity, the rest is waste and put into the environment. Much of the energy of the heat is lost as the steam passes through the turbines, with the heat being converted to mechanical energy, and then to electrical. This accounts for about 35% to 40% of the energy of the heat, cooling it by the removal of that heat. It would be possible for residual heat to be tapped for conversion into electricity, also, but this is not done in most nuclear reactors. Converting it to electricity would get another 10% or so of the heat of the remaining steam, cooling the steam further. The remainder of the heat is waste. It is dumped into the environment, primarily into the air, by using heat exchangers and cooling towers. In this system, the steam is used to heat water, condensing in the process. The water is then used to heat air in the cooling tower. Another way to get rid of waste heat is to use heat exchangers to heat a nearby body of water, such as a lake, the ocean, or a river. This is usually done only in the summer, when the atmosphere is warm and the cooling towers are not efficient enough to do their work.


The most common substances used as nuclear fuel are Uranium 235 and Plutonium 239. These isotopes are fissile, which means that they will fission (split) in a controlled manner when bombarded with high energy neutrons, and release energy in the form of heat. This heat is used to boil water in huge boilers. The resulting steam is used to drive steam turbines which generate electrical energy.
