What is hydro phonics?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Hydroponics is a method of growing plants without soil, where nutrient-rich water is used as the growing medium. The plants are typically grown in a controlled environment, such as a greenhouse, and receive all their essential nutrients through the water. This method allows for more efficient use of water and nutrients, and can result in faster growth and higher crop yields.

First take a bottle of water and put a small motor inside it. then take a tube and paste it on the top of the bottle after that make a slide from the tube that help it to come down easily. Now yourDAM is ready

How do you make a hydro power generator at home?

Asked by Wiki User

At a hydroelectric station, gravity causes water to fall onto a turbine, causing it to spin. The turbine's rotation within an electromagnetic field converts the kinetic energy of the turbine into electrical energy.

What are the energy transformations that take place in Hydroelectric Dam Power Plants?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

In hydroelectric power moving water turns spins a turbine. A shaft from that turbine sticks into a generator. That produces electricity. In a coal fired power plant coal heats water and steam from the boiling water turns a shaft that sticks into a generator. That makes electric power. Any source of power that can make a large shaft turn can produce electricity. The electricity comes out of the generator on wires. It goes to a power transformer. The transformer turns it into high voltage electricity. That way it can travel over transmission lines without losing energy. It is also called wholesale power. It is like a grocer who buys large boxes of cereal and cuts open the large cardboard boxes and then puts the family size boxes on the shelf to sell. You can not use this high voltage electricity. It is so powerful, it would cook you. It goes to a substation where it goes to another transformer. There is reduced in power to where it is safe to put in wires that run down the streets. Then it goes to another transformer where it becomes safe to put in the wires that go to your home.

What are the infrastructure requirements for utilizing hydroelectric power?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is a renewable form of energy. Most hydroelectric power comes from the potential energy of dammed water driving a water turbine and generator. The power extracted from the water depends on the volume and on the difference in height between the source and the water's outflow. This height difference is called the head. The amount of potential energy in water is proportional to the head. A large pipe (the "penstock") delivers water to the turbine. The spinning turbine produces the electricity.

What equipment is needed to use hydroelectricity?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

To tap hydroelectricity, there must be a dam which can store water and let it flow rapidly through a sink hole. The pressure of the falling water can drive generator turbines and these will generate electricity.

What is the largest hydroelectric project?

Asked by Wiki User

Hoover Dam is the largest hydro electric dam in the world.

This Is Totally Wrong.

The Largest Hydro-Electric Dam In North America Is The Mighty Grand Coulee Dam In The State Of Washington Which Produces 3 Times The Megawatts As Hoover Dam. Grand Coulee Produces 6,809 megawatts And Hoover Dam Only 2,078 megawatts. The Mighty Grand Coulee Contains Nearly 12 Million Cubic Yars Of Concrete And Hoover Only 3,250,000 Cubic Yards. Grand Coulee Dam Contains In It's Third Powerhouse 3 Of The Worlds Largest Generators At 805 Megawatts Each. The Mighty Columbia River Flows 3 Times The Water As Does The Colorado. These Two Dams Are Not Even Close In Comparison.

What makes electricity by letting falling water turn turbines and generators?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The moving or falling water travels through a turbine, causing the turbine blades to spin.

This in turn, is used to drive a generator (in simple terms, this is a magnet that spins inside a coil of copper wire).

The rotating magnetic field produced by the spinning magnet induces an electrical current in the copper wire hence generating electricity.

How do you use hydroelectricity to make electricity?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

when water fiows from water resource then potential energy converts into kinetic energy. due to this water rotates to the turbines and conversion of kinetic energy into mechanical takes place . the shaft of turbine is connected to generator and in turbine due to rotation magnetic flux takesplace and electricity is produced.

What is the conclusion for a hydro-electric power?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Hydropower is the cheapest way to generate electricity today. No other energy source, renewable or nonrenewable, can match it. Producing electricity from hydropower is cheap because, once a dam has been built and the equipment installed, the energy source-flowing water-is free.

Although Hydropower does present a few environmental problems the inherent technical, economic and environmental benefits of hydroelectric power make it an important contributor to the future world energy mix,

What energy transformation in hydroelectric power plant?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Potential energy of the water in the reservoir changes to kinetic energy as it is forced through the turbine. The blades of turbine represent mechanical energy, spinning the turbine generator which converts the mechanical energy into electrical energy due to the nature of the generator.

Generators use electromagnetic induction turbines, which at its basic level is rotating a wire within a magnetic field, this generating electricity.
