Conservation of Energy
a fundamental principle stating energy cannot be created nor destroyed but only changed from one form to another
=(useful energy output / total energy input) x 100
force x distance (in the direction of the force)
the SI unit of energy
power derived from the wind (as by wind turbines)
energy produced from falling water to move machinery or generate electricity
Electricity generated by the movement of sea water caused by the tides
Is electrical power produced from ocean waves that is used to turn an electrical generator
