  • 4 Major Types Of Wind - 1,616 words
    4 Major Types of Wind subject = Science title = 4 Major Types of Wind Wind, Its So Much More I did my report on wind. As you may or may not know wind moves horizontally, and the wind that doesnt move horizontally moves vertically. That kind of wind is called a current. Many things may cause these rushes of moving air, one thing would be atmospheric pressure differences. The differences in the distribution of pressure and temperature is caused by the unequal distribution of heat. There are also the differences in the thermal properties of land and the ocean surfaces. When the temperatures of different regions become unequal, the warmer air will normally rise and move over the cold air because ...

  • Fair Stood The Wind For France - 737 words
    Fair Stood The Wind For France Bates is a Romance Fiction set at the height of World War Two. The story follows the main character, John Franklin, through his journey when he brings his aircraft down into occupied France. The novel deals with love, war, isolation and conflict; although there is no specific theme to the book. I felt that the books purpose was very clear. Bates wanted to show that within all the horrors of war, two people were able to find love and happiness. Franklin had crashed his plane and his arm was severely damaged. Yet while looking for help he found a wonderful family, and if that had not happened then Franklin would never have been able to meet Francoise. Bates make ...

  • Gone With The Wind - 955 words
    Gone With The Wind Gone With the Wind : Born Survivors Gone With the Wind is a novel written by Margaret Mitchell which focuses on the life of a Southern belle during the Civil War. The underlying focus in Mitchell's Gone With the Wind is that only those who are born survivors will really prosper during times of true hardship. A born survivor is one who will do anything to survive, at any cost. They will get down in the dirt and work like a dog just for a day's meal; they will take something from someone else just so that they and their own can live. These people may have social advantages or they may be poor farmers. The key element in their make-up is that they want to survive, they need t ...

  • Inherit The Wind - 910 words
    Inherit The Wind The Truth about Stanley Kramer's Inherit the Wind History is consistently used in films as a technique to teach the values and morals of events that occurred. But what's the point in teaching history through films when they are terribly fictional? In films, the director finds the best scheme to intrigue their audience only by changing the actual event to satisfy their interest. This is true for Stanley Kramer when he made the history of John Scopes and his "monkey trial" into a film called Inherit the Wind. Kramer knew the exact stereotypical "Hollywood history" his audience enjoyed. The trial itself had a series of conflicts, the main one being evolution vs. religion. Yet t ...

    Inherit The Wind Think Piece Inherit the Wind Think Piece In today's society, where angry children shoot, bomb, and threaten their schoolmates, there exists a rather incoherent line between appropriate classroom conversation and unacceptable discussion. True, this line did not exist some years ago, but as times changed, so did certain parameters. A teacher's freedom in the classroom is one such hotly debated question. Where should the line be drawn? What is the difference between right and wrong? These are questions that are not easily answered. Some say that we should look at each individual incident of indecent or inappropriate discussion, but really, how will these halt future conversatio ...

  • The Ode To The West Wind By Percy Bysshee Shelley - 900 words
    The Ode To The West Wind By Percy Bysshee Shelley The Ode of Imagery The Ode to the West Wind, by Percy Bysshee Shelley, is a poem of spiritual power. The power is demonstrated through the use of visual, auditory, and kinetic (motion) imagery. The poem was written on a day that the "tempestuous wind, whose temperature is at once mild and animating, was collecting the vapors which pour down the autumns rains [Shelly's notes]." The poem uses terza rima to portray a very rhythmic rhyming pattern. This pattern is used to describe five very distinct and different stanzas, which describe: autumn, rainstorms, the sea, man merging with the wind, and man being the sound of the wind. Shelley uses thre ...

  • The Wind In The Willows By Kenneth Grahame - 1,059 words
    The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame Kenneth Grahames The Wind in the Willows is a satirical reflection of the English social structure of the late nineteenth century, during a time of rapid industrialization throughout Europe. Also considered a childrens story, this novel conveys Grahames belief in the ability of one to live an unrestrained and leisurely life, free of the obligations of the working class, and entitled to this life through high social status and wealth. The River Bank characters, especially Toad, represent those who live this idle life of the upper class. In contrast, the stoats and weasels of the Wild Wood resemble the proletariat, and an animosity between these two c ...

  • Wind Energy - 327 words
    Wind Energy For many centuries wind has been used as a reliable source of energy. It is clean and inexhaustible. Wind is used to make the job of a human simpliar. It is used for grinding grain, pumping water, and to enable sail boats to move. Though often the amount of wind power varies depending on the climate of an area. Although wind power is only used in selected areas the recent interest in fuel conservation has sparked the development of windfarms. In the 1980s a studied showed that in order to produce one kilowatt- hour of energy cost 4 cents. The best known horizontal axis machine in the United States is the American farm windmill which is frequently used to pump water. This machine ...

    Wind Power Energy is the ability to do work. It surrounds us in all aspect of life. However, the ability to harness it and use it, as economically as possible, is the challenge before mankind. Alternative energy refers to energy sources, which are not based on the burning of fossil fuels or the splitting of atoms. The renewed interest in this field of study comes from the undesirable effects of pollution both from burning fossil fuels and nuclear waste by products. Fortunately, there are many means of harnessing energy that have less damaging impacts on the environment. One example wind power. Wind energy is a clean and renewable source of electric power and is also the world's fastest growi ...

  • Wind Power - 2,254 words
    Wind Power annon The wind turbine, also called a windmill, is a means of harnessing the kinetic energy of the wind and converting it into electrical energy. This is accomplished by turning blades called aerofoils, which drive a shaft, which drive a motor (turbine) and ar e connected to a generator. 'It is estimated that the total power capacity of winds surrounding the earth is 1 x 1011 Gigawatts' (Cheremisinoff 6). The total energy of the winds fluctuates from year to year. Windmill expert Richard Hills said that the wind really is a fickle source of power, with wind speeds to low or inconsistent for the windmill to be of practical use. However, that hasn't stopped windmill engineers from t ...

The following equation helps figure out how fast the a certain-bladed windmill will rotate in relation to windmills with different numbers of blades: Speed of windmill="1" / sq. root of number of blades The aerofoils of a four bladed machine rotate 71% as fast as that of a 2 bladed machine. A six bladed machine rotates at 58% and an 8 bladed machine rotates at 56% as fast as a 2 bladed machine. Electricity and Storage of Energy As mentioned previously, the generators in a wind turbine can convert the mechanical energy produced by the rotation of the shaft into electrical energy, DC. F ...

  • Wind - 1,651 words
    Wind Wind can tell us many things about weather conditions. A person knowledgeable about local weather can take the temperature and dew point, wind data and altimeter setting and make a pretty good estimate of what the present weather is. He can throw away all but the wind and still give you an approximate weather outlook. There is a simple key to understanding wind: Variations in pressure from place to place create wind, because air tends to flow from high pressure to low, as water flows from high ground to low. This phenomenon has led to the creation of a model to explain worldwide air circulation. Because cooler air is denser than warmer air, its pressure is higher. As air at the equator ...

The accompanying soundtrack plays as much of a role in the development of suspense and intrigue as the actors performances. Three decades later, the soundtrack remains one of the most recognized in cine ...

    2/23/99 The Hindenburg Disaster Count Ferdinand Von Zeppelin and his crew operated their first airship nearly one hundred years ago. Airships are big controllable balloons, also known as dirigibles. There are three classes of airships, rigid, nonrigid and semirigid. Rigid airships (zeppelins) use framework in the interior to keep their shape. Semirigid airships are a combination of framework and gas pressure to maintain their shape. Nonrigid airships (blimps) rely solely on air pressure to keep their form. They are all propelled with engines, use rudders and elevator flaps for steering and have a gondola where passengers travel. The pride of the zeppelin works was a rigid airship which was o ...
