Energy in Various Contexts - Distinction Between Energy and Power
... Although in everyday usage the terms energy and power are essentially synonyms, scientists and engineers distinguish between them ... In its technical sense, power is not at all the same as energy, but is the rate at which energy is converted (or, equivalently, at which work is performed) ... by allowing the water above the dam to pass through turbines, converts the water's potential energy into kinetic energy and ultimately into electric energy, whereas the amount ...

### Famous quotes containing the words energy in, contexts and/or energy:

The chief function of the city is to convert power into form, energy into culture, dead matter into the living symbols of art, biological reproduction into social creativity.
Lewis Mumford (1895–1990)

The “text” is merely one of the contexts of a piece of literature, its lexical or verbal one, no more or less important than the sociological, psychological, historical, anthropological or generic.
Leslie Fiedler (b. 1917)

The tendencies of the times favor the idea of self-government, and leave the individual, for all code, to the rewards and penalties of his own constitution, which work with more energy than we believe, whilst we depend on artificial restraints.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
