  • Nuclear Reactor Essay

    production of carbon dioxide emissions. What is typically understood among nations invested in nuclear energy is that such technology is largely free of carbon dioxide emissions at the source of production- a favorable avenue in context to fossil fuel utilization, but is historically rot with extreme development and management concerns. Repurposing the fundamental concept of nuclear technology, through aggressive research and development in the form of liquid fluoride thorium reactors, the nuclear energy produced from this form will provide the…

  • Determining The Enthalpy Of Combustion Of Kerosens.

    Below, one representative graph and a set of sample calculations are included which will show how the values for the enthalpy of combustion of the fuel sources are deduced. Graph 1: Scatter plot showing the change in the temperature of 80.0mL of distilled water in the tin calorimeter during and after the combustion of the kerosene for the first conducted trial. The linear trendline was created for the last three data points, where the water was allowed to cool, which was then extrapolated…

  • Point-Based Estimate

    The authors could have compared time exposed to biomass fuels between men and women, then included interaction terms in their statistical analysis: It appears that exposure duration or fuel composition may act as a modifier of biomass fuel use. The authors state that men are more likely to be exposed due to factors such as tobacco use,1 but that women are more likely to be exposed due to smoke whilst cooking.1 Assuming that the amount of exposure is therefore the same, the differences in Tb…

  • Observation On The Cause And Cure Of Sq Chimneys

    developing nations for home heating and cooking. Although modern chimneys have far advanced from their medieval predecessors, they do not address the problems that arise from the emissions that they remove from the home. Motivation for this research lies in the fact that emissions from burning solid biofuels are incredibly harmful to human health, and a major contributor to both greenhouse gas emissions and short lived climate forcers (SLCF). It is estimated that incomplete combustion and…

  • Geothermal Energy Essay

    electricity production from geothermal energy is same as that of conventional coal fired power plant except the generation of steam in the former is from natural geothermal resource. Generated steam powers the turbine/generator to produce electricity. Geothermal energy is tapped by drilling wells into the reservoirs and piping the hot water or steam into a power plant for electricity production. The temperature, pressure, and fluid content of reservoir determine the type of power plant. There…

  • Natural Gas Impact

    plowed in order to be suitable for growing. Clearing and plowing of the land will be done with machines that more than likely use fuel sources with high emissions. Also, trees may be cut down in order to clear the land. Thus, oxygen levels are lowered and carbon dioxide levels will rise. Back to the crops, more crops means more fertilizer. More fertilizer not only means more emissions but also more non-point source pollution. The question with biofuels then become do the costs outweigh the…
