Petroleum and Wind
Energy 101: Wind Turbines
This video is about wind turbines and how they work
Crude Oil Refinery Operations 1994
This video is about how oil refinery's work and what they do
Where the resource are found
- Petroleum is found in underground pockets called reservoirs
- Wind is found in places that are most windy because then they will be able to spin and make energy
How are they formed
- Wind is caused by the uneven heating of the earths surface by the sun
- petroleum is a fossil fuel that was formed from the remains of ancient marine organisms.
How are they used
- Petroleum products include transportation fuels, fuel oils for heating and electricity generation, asphalt and road oil, and the feedstocks used to make chemicals, plastics, and synthetic materials found in nearly everything we use today.
- Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity to power homes, businesses, schools, and the like.
What cool facts about the two can you find?
- Wind energy is cool because they dont make any pollution
- Petrochemicals (found in oil) helped produce the electronic device you are reading on right now.
How to innovate with the two energies
- You could make a lot of wind turbines in the desert or in a place where theres always wind
- You can drill into another planet
