Explore the following printable examples of various energy flow diagrams available on this page. These examples will give you a brief overview of some energy flow diagrams such as wind turbine energy flow, ecosystem energy flow, and the others.
Energy has been defined as the capacity to do work. The first one below is the ecosystem energy diagram.
The image above shows the full cycle of the ecosystem energy flow diagram. Explore the cycle and study where the energy goes as it moves through the ecosystem. Organisms can be either producers or consumers in terms of energy flow through an ecosystem. Producers convert energy from the environment into carbon bonds, such as those found in the sugar glucose. Plants are the most obvious examples of producers. Another word for producers is autotrophs. The following is the wind turbine energy flow diagram.
Wind turbines, like aircraft propeller blades, turn in the moving air and power an electric generator that supplies an electric current. Wind turbines operate on a simple principle. The energy in the wind turns two or three propeller-like blades around a rotor. The rotor is connected to the main shaft, which spins a generator to create electricity. Click on the image to see the larger diagram. The terms wind energy or wind power describes the process by which the wind is used to generate mechanical power or electricity.
This diagram can be used to track the cycle of certain energy flow. All of the diagrams are printable and you can find more of our educational diagrams in the other posts or categories! Download, print, and get started!
