N. Tesla was known not only as a genius but a madman as well because of his theories but would he have actually changed the path of global energy as we know it today?

N.Tesla is a great.Without him no electricity today.Even charles babbage his computers use Tesla invention.Tesla wishes free energy like what is now called solar system and wind energy and many more energy not use fuel or oil.

How much power can a car battery deliver?

if you are talking power, the the CCA, cold cranking amps at 0 deg F of larger car batteries is around 880 CCA meaning an instantaneous power in excess of 10 KW.It won't be able to sustain it for long (like 30 seconds), the battery may overheat, and it can also be limited quite a bit at lower temperatures.CAr

In terms of the efficiency, cost, and feasibility of renewable energy, how does wave energy from oceans compare to wind and solar?

It's difficult to do, but 3/4 of the planet's surface is ocean, so the potential is enormous. Here's some old research that has not been developed -

How have cell phone batteries evolved over time?

The first cell phone battery was nickel cadmium. Nickel cadmium batteries don't have very high energy density, so the phones that used this were tremendously expensive and took forever to charge but only lasted for an hour. NiCd batteries have something called

Will fusion energy be available in the next 20 years?

Since the 1950's people have been stating that controlled Fusion power plants will be available within the next 20 years, and every year it is the same thing: The next 20 years.....It is an Immense problem that has three issues:MaterialsHeatControlabilityOther than that it is easy.

Are consciousness and energy the same thing?

Energy has a specific meaning that is well understood by physicists. And for people outside of physics, it's very difficult to understand just how much we know about the basic forces making up our world.All we need to account for everything we see in our everyday lives are a handful of particles - electrons, protons, and

What gives a singularity point its energy?

The theory of everything in physics does not account for the presence of consciousness in the universe and it does not explain the origin of energy. Following modified theory of big bang explains these two aspects and therefore can be called the theory of everything.In the beginning there was unified field of consciousness (Spirit)

Can light pass through light unaffected?

Yes, unless you are passing two beam of lasers of high power inside some particular nonlinear crystal. In that case, you can achieve fancy phenomena like frequency doubling/up conversion/down conversion and all sorts of strange stuff.

Why is there energy in empty space?

Our universe could be a 3-sphere. Apparently Einstein thought it was. If it is a 3-sphere then a photon moving at the speed of light is effectively in orbit around the universe. Then it is possible to use a simple Newtonian

Is geothermal energy considered a renewable source?

Of course not.The radioactive element decay that supply heat is limited in the earth, there is no more new supply to maintain it. The existing radioactive element decay is weakening by time elapse.The impact heat and compression heat from eons ago when the earth is formed is declining all the time and there is no new supply for

How long will the Sun keep giving energy?

Every second sun gives out energy at a rate of 3860 Quintillion (3860 followed by 30 zeros) Mega watts. To put that in perceptive, our world consumes about 1.476 Sextillion (1.476 followed by 21 zeros) Mega watts of primary emery every Year.The sun gives out a billion times more energy compared to earth's

What would be a suitable energy source?

I'd go with a solution of hydrogen peroxide that will decompose when exposed to a perchlorate salt, producing oxygen gas and water.  This is the basis of the famous "elephant toothpaste" classroom demonstration, and is probably the best way to get a lot of gas going in the direction you want without it being explosive or

International Space Station: Why isn't solar thermal power used in space?

Temperature difference doesn't always mean a viable power source. When generating power, quantity is as important as quality. In space, there is only one effective way to get rid of excess heat: radiation. Radiation is the least understood of the methods of heat transfer. At

What is the source of earth energy?

The question is a little vague, ...but if it's

How is the Sun able to sustain so much energy for so long without fizzling out?

A whole lot of hydrogen to keep fusing which keeps pumping out such a mass of energy. But it will run out of hydrogen in about 4 billion years. Then it will cool and swell to such a size that as a

How were car alternators used to rectify energy before silicon diodes?

They used selenium rectifiers. They were somewhat large, expensive, inefficient and easily damaged. Most cars used generators which is what all of the other answers mention. However, one of the characteristics of the generator was that it did not work well at idle speeds. Police cars of the the thirties were starting to be equipped

Why do environmentalists insist that we change to green energy when it will never take the place of fossil fuels?

One of the largest corporations in North America disagrees with you. GM is moving away from IC engine cars and towards new technology systems.If all the research was completed and tests done we would be able to replace all that is ALL the burning of fossil fuels

Is the photon energy infinite?

If a photon had infinite energy then the effects of this energy would be felt infinitly threwout the universe. So no that's rediculous. I think its just a simple way of saying that any more energy then light speed an not hold a form day like matter in a perpetual stable spin.Dame with

Why is carbon a source of energy?

While carbon alone is a good source of energy--anthracite coal is a good example--carbon also has an amazing ability to bond with hydrogen and form hydrocarbons. Fossil fuels like coal and petroleum are chock full of hydrocarbons. Ancient algae and plant life stored solar energy through photosynthesis in the atomic bonds between hydrogen and carbon, and then

What would happen to the gravitational potential energy of earth if the sun vanishes some how?

Recent experimental evidence has shown the force of gravity travels at less that the speed of light;between 2.55 and 3.81 x 10 to the 8th power, meters per second.the

Can we produce the same energy as the Sun gives?

No I don't think we can produce same energy as sun gives. As if u go through the source of energy of the sun u wl discover that in the interior part of the sun after some negligible interval of time ( In sec I guess but

We know that the sun gives us energy. Isn't the sun losing mass by giving energy, or aren't we gaining mass?

It seems that you have some idea in mind when asking this question - especially when asking if

The universe is ever expanding life dies every day, and that energy goes somewhere is it possible that when we die our energy becomes dark matter?

It is estimated that dark matter is about 25% of everything. Compared to ordinary matter (you, me, our dead ancestors, Earth, the Sun and all the billions of galaxies out there, etc.) that is about 5 times more. So if your hypothesis has merits, it means there must have been a hell of a lot of dead bodies somewhere

Does the photon energy effect the emission?

I think you need to clarify the emission of what?This could be the photoelectric effect and emission of electrons or it could be about emission of light from atoms and does the photon energy affect that. (In which case it is a bit cart before horse)

Does the sun lose mass while emitting light and heat energy?

Yes, due to the Law of Conservation of Matter and Energy there is a limited amount of matter and energy in the Universe. The sun is slowly running out of energy, and will eventually burn out. All stars do. It has only a certain amount of fuel which is converted into fire and plasma. The energy

Does the metric expansion of space coupled with vacuum energy imply that on very large scales, energy is constantly being created?

No. While the energy density of dark energy is indeed constant despite the expansion of the universe, combined with its negative pressure and the work done by gravity, energy is still conserved during the expansion.Think of it this way. When gravity does work (i.e., potential energy is converted into something else) on a normal substance with

What's going to happen in 2050 or 2100 if fusion power is still 'just 10 to 30 years away'?

Fourth Generation Fission reactors will have demonstrated their economics, safety, and attributes to a point that fusion research might die.

Have you switched to renewable energy; if so, are you satisfied with your energy supplier?

My home has rooftop solar PV (5 kW) and a battery (9.8 kWh nominal capacity). I live in the suburbs and am grid-connected. On average, my daily electricity demand is about 5kWh and I get over 90% of that electricity from solar. I am very satisfied with my energy supplier, the Sun.

What happens when we run out of non-renewable energy?

You need to gather at least 20 giant hamster wheels and have humans run in them for 8 hours a day. This will create enough power to supply 6,000 people with power for the day. For a country with around 80 million population

Quantum physics: Is everything energy?

You could argue that all matter condensed from energy following the big bang, and you can argue that there is an equation that says m = E/c^2, and . . . But wait, mass does not equal energy at all. Do
