4. A hurricane has wind energy of 270000 torr. What is the wind velocity inside this hurricain. Show calculation.

5.A house needs 4000 KW of electricity. How many solar panels, each 10 m long and 5 m wide are needed to generate this amount of electricity. Show calculation.

6.A city requires 45000 KW of electricity per minute. How many grams of Uranium 235 are needed to supply one day (24 hrs) of electricity to this city. Show calculation.

NUCLEAR ENERGY EQUATIONS

Uranium has THREE ISOTOPES, U238, U236, U235.

(a) U 238 + n ——– U 235 + 3n + Heat energy (4200 KW)

uranium 238 uranium 235 gamma (nuclear power)

(b) U 236 + n ——- U 235 + n + Heat energy (3400 KW)

(c) U 235 + n ——- Th 235 + Heat energy (2200 KW)

(uranium 235) (thorium)

ENERGY EQUATION:

E = mv ( E = wind energy, m = mass of wind, v = wind velocity )
