  2. Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) is a method for generating electricity by taking advantage of this vast temperature difference.

Exchange

  1. Heat transfer, also known as heat flow, heat exchange, or transfer of thermal energy is the movement of heat from one place to another. (Web site)

Thermal Equilibrium

  1. The electromagnetic radiation in an opaque cavity at thermal equilibrium is effectively a form of thermal energy, having maximum radiation entropy. (Web site)

Contact

  1. A heat is defined as a transfer (flow) of thermal energy across certain boundary (for example, from a hot body to cold via the area of their contact.
  2. Due to the machinations of Serafina, it appears that Aurora and Northstar can now generate explosive thermal energy on contact with each other as well. (Web site)

Light

  1. His powers have recently been enhanced to the point where he and Aurora can generate explosive thermal energy in addition to light. (Web site)

Solids

  1. Because solids have thermal energy, their atoms vibrate about fixed mean positions within the ordered (or disordered) lattice. (Web site)

Plasma

  1. It is important to note that what you must confine is the *energy* (thermal energy) stored in the plasma, and not necessarily the plasma particles. (Web site)

Similarly

  1. Similarly a fan may improve the transfer of thermal energy from the heat sink to the air.

Greater

  1. The thermal energy released was greater than the energy in the BEC and about half of all the thousands of atoms of the rubidium-85 disappeared. (Web site)
  2. The greater the movement of these particles, the greater the thermal energy. (Web site)

Forms

  1. The electric potential energy in the atmosphere changes into thermal energy, light, and sound, which are other forms of energy.
  2. Even though the total amount of energy doesn’t change, energy keeps trickling away from the other forms into thermal energy. (Web site)
  3. It may also be convenient to distinguish gravitational energy, electric energy, thermal energy, and other forms.

Nuclei

  1. Interestingly, the cross section is itself also a function of thermal energy in the nuclei.
  2. The kinetic energy of fission products is converted to thermal energy when these nuclei collide with nearby atoms. (Web site)

Motion

  1. Presence of energy that maintains motion needed for restoring force (thermal energy in this case); [0055] 2. (Web site)
