what is condensation?
when a gas turns into a liquid
which wave from the EM spectrum has the highest frequency and energy?
What is carbon capture?
carbon capture is to store and capture CO2 into empty fields. They do this to reduce the green house gas effect.
What is non renewable energy?
Energy that will run out eventually
Nmae a advantage of wind trubines?
Produce energy/no pollution/low running cost
Name all the renewable energys
Wind, waves, tides, hydroelectric, solar ,geothermal, food and biofuels
What does the national grid do?
The national grid takes electrical energy from power stations where it is needed in homes.
What is the equation to find out energy transfer?
Mass x specific heat capactiy x temperature change.
Name the nine types of energy?
electrical, light, sound, kinetic, nuclear, thermal, gravatational potential, elastic potential and chemical.
Can sound waves reflect and refract?
What is the amplitude of a wave?
The height of the wave measured from the rest point.
What is the equation to find out wave speed?
Frequency x wavelength
Why do artic foxes have small ears?
To minimise heat loss
What is evaparation?
When a liquid turns into a gas?
What three ways is heat transfered in?
Radiation conduction and convection
Name a disadvantage of wind turbines?
cost a lot to set up/ not reliable
Name the two types of waves?
longditudianl and transverse
What are U-values?
How fast heat can transfer
What are the three types of matter?
liquids solids and gases
Why are solids good at conducting?
Because of their free electrons
