Concept of Internal Energy

The energy contained in a system is called internal energy. It is denoted by U. It is the sum of following forms of energy-
(i) Kinetic energy due to translational, rotational and vibrational motion of the molecules, all of which depend on the temperature, 170 more words

PhET Collision Lab

Simulate 1D and 2D collisions and see conservation of momentum, conservation of kinetic energy, and more

Applets / Interactives


We enjoyed making these last weekend. I have tried flying fish with my children before now, which are great fun. Just make a slit in the end portion of a strip of paper, and one on the other end but on the other side. 200 more words


In this paper, the air turbulent flow in coaxial jet burner is investigated numerically using the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) modeling approach. 3D computational fluid dynamics code (CFD) has been used and the gas phase equations are solved using the finite volume method. 78 more words


The Future of Wind Turbines? No Blades

IT’S NO LONGER SURPRISING TO encounter 100-foot pinwheels spinning in the breeze as you drive down the highway. But don’t get too comfortable with that view. 236 more words

Alternative Energy

kinetic potential.

I’ve always been more interested in the little interactions that go unnoticed between two people, all the minute moments overlooked. The small brush of skin as you walk alongside someone too closely; perhaps it’s an accident, perhaps it’s not. 372 more words
