# Topic: Internal energy

 Energy - Engineering Energy can be in several forms: mechanical potential—due to possible physical interactions with other objects (for example, gravitational potential energy); kinetic—contained in macroscopic motion; chemical—potential stored in chemical bonds between atoms; electrical—potential due to possible charge interactions; thermal—contained in the kinetic energy of individual molecules[[2]]; nuclear energy[[3]]—potential stored between constituents of atomic nucleus [[4]]. In contrast to kinetic energy, which is the energy of a system due to its motion, or the internal motion of its particles, the potential energy of a system is the energy associated with the spatial configuration of its components and their interaction with each other. Internal energy is the kinetic energy associated with the motion of molecules, and the potential energy associated with the rotational, vibrational and electric energy of atoms within molecules. engineering.wikia.com /wiki/Energy   (2599 words)

 Internal energy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The SI unit of energy is the joule although other historical, conventional units are still in use, such as the (small and large) calorie for heat. From the standpoint of statistical mechanics, the internal energy is equal to the ensemble average of the total energy of the system. and the Euler theorem yields for the internal energy (Landau and Lifshitz 1986): en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Internal_energy   (980 words)

 Internal Energy Internal energy is defined as the energy associated with the random, disordered motion of molecules. It is separated in scale from the macroscopic ordered energy associated with moving objects; it refers to the invisible microscopic energy on the atomic and molecular scale. Internal energy involves energy on the microscopic scale. hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu /hbase/thermo/inteng.html   (318 words)

 Internal vs. External Forces   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03) The significance of categorizing a force as internal or external is related to the ability of that type of force to change an object's total mechanical energy when it does work upon an The gain or loss in energy can be in the form of potential energy, kinetic energy, or both. Thus, energy is transformed from KE to PE (or vice versa); however, the total mechanical energy is conserved. www.glenbrook.k12.il.us /gbssci/phys/Class/energy/u5l2a.html   (1069 words)

 Energy forms and definitions, kinetic energy and potential - basic energy concepts for teachers and students - from ... Energy is being transferred, by the process of heat flow, from his body to the surrounding water. Internal energy is the word that is more correctly used in thermodynamics to describe the microscopic forces and movements that are often called heat. In fact temperature in a gas is often described (not defined!) as the average kinetic energy of all the atoms and molecules in the gas. www.ftexploring.com /energy/enrg-types.htm   (2190 words)

 Food and Energy It’s the energy in food that sustains us, and the effect of food energy on our body is the basis for the dietary practice known as macrobiotics. Energy exists on a continuum, from yin, among whose attributes are cold, darkness, and contraction, to yang, characterized by heat, light, and expansion. Methods of preparation affect the energy in foods and are also important—ingredients and preparation are suited to the season and locale, with an emphasis on variety, and the use of electricity in cooking is avoided. www.goodhealthinfo.net /food_and_energy.htm   (593 words)

 Thermal energy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The energy of a particle in a system that moves relative to the system is the particle's kinetic energy ("motional energy"). At any moment the total internal energy (thermal energy) of a thermodynamic system is the sum of the kinetic energies and the potential energies of all the particles in the system at that moment. In this context, the thermal energy of an ideal gas is only the sum of the kinetic energies of the idealised, volumeless particles which interact only with the walls of any container and not with each other so lack potential energy. en.wikipedia.org /wiki/Thermal_energy   (365 words)

 The Physics Classroom The significance of categorizing a force as internal or external is related to the ability of that type of force to change an object's total mechanical energy when it does work upon an object. Under such circumstances, the work which is done will be equal to the change in mechanical energy of the object; this principle will be discussed in great detail later in this lesson. When work is done by external forces, the total mechanical energy of the object is altered. www.physicsclassroom.com /Class/energy/U5L2a.html   (1074 words)

 Energy, Work, Heat – 1st Law of Thermodynamics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03) For example, the increase in potential energy of a stone (actually, stone + earth) gained by lifting it against the force of gravity is the negative of the work done by gravity on the stone. this is the initial internal energy of the egg.

 Internal energy of a moving fluid   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03) Some of this total gain of energy is manifested as an increase in the kinetic energy of the fluid, and the remainder, according to the first law of thermodynamics, appears as an increase in the internal energy of the fluid. This latter contribution is non-negative, showing that any shearing motion in the fluid is inevitably accompanied by a unidirectional transfer of energy from the forces causing the motion to internal energy of the fluid, as is to be expected from the frictional character of the associated stress. for this rate of dissipation of mechanical energy, per unit volume of fluid, due to viscosity, and note that it is equivalent, in its effect on the fluid, to an irreversible addition of heat. grus.berkeley.edu /~jrg/ay202/node73.html   (852 words)

 Energy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03) The relationships between heat, the internal energy of the system, and the enthalpy of the system during a chemical reaction can be summarized as follows. Because the internal energy, pressure, and volume of a gas are all state functions, the enthalpy of a system is also a state function. When a table of bond energies is used to estimate the enthalpy associated with the formation of a bond, the sign becomes negative because energy is released when bonds are formed. chemed.chem.purdue.edu /genchem/topicreview/bp/ch5/energy.html   (1860 words)

 TVA: Internal Energy Management   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03) TVA took a leadership role in internal energy management in 1973 by initiating efforts to reduce energy use and associated costs at its facilities. The NECPA was later followed by the Energy Policy Act of 1992, the Energy Policy Act of 2005, and various Presidential executive orders, laws, and guidance documents. These laws and regulations have required further reductions of energy use, the purchase of energy efficient equipment (motors, compressors, transformers, computers, lighting, heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems, etc.), reductions in potable water use, increases in vehicle fuel efficiency, and the application of sustainable principles. www.tva.gov /abouttva/energy_management.htm   (237 words)
