What we're supposed to do is build a model of something that demonstrates a conversion of energy. That's simple enough. The problem comes in when we
have to use at least 2 forms of energy, one of them being thermal energy. THe model has to show Thermodynamics.
I have been looking nonstop for projects and have come up with the following:
As you can see my list is bare. I was wondering if you guys could provide me with some links that might help. ty.
well...the solar pannel idea is good and also simple to demonstrate.
i dont know if this would meet your criteria but a simple water wheel idea turning through a gearbox that in turn drives a 12v car alternator would be
one?...or just a simple dynamo.
if you could build a water wheel and then just drive a 12v Lucas car dynamo (running through a regulator) straight off the drive shaft of the wheel
that should be easy enough to build?...short of that a wind generator would work...or look up an old fashioned 'Bell pump' or do some reading on
steam engines...small working models are easy enough to find.
