Question about a Windmill / Turbine

  • #1

Homework Statement


Consider a turbine which actuates the windmills by blowing air into it. (If we use beat steady windmills (which is called reverse windmills) instead of movable windmills, deliberate the following conditions by parametric view. (Ignore the friction power (force))
A. Compare moving speed of air molecules in the following conditions:
1. There are reversed steady windmills between movable windmills.
2. There are movable reversed windmills in the middle of movable windmills which are actuated by wind power (energy).

Homework Equations


I am not sure
E = ½mv2
W = Fd
mv22 = ½mv12
v2 = v02 + 2as
a
= ( v2 - v02 ) / 2s
F
= ma = m ( v2 - v02 ) / 2s
K
= 0.5mv2
Wtot = K2 - K1 = ΔK

The Attempt at a Solution


I do not know

Can you ask your professor for some clarification or guidance in the right direction?

movable windmills

movable reversed windmills
Can you shed any light on what these terms mean? I can find no matches in a Google search.

Edit: that wasn't quite true. I got lots of matches on "reverse windmill", as a particularly flamboyant way to score in basketball.

Ok dear friend
I just meant that it appears that you don't know where to start - your description is vague, then you have several formulas that have to do with motion and force and kinetic energy.

So far, nobody here is familiar with this particular terminology, so I thought a fellow classmate or your prof might be able to shed more light that we can (right now, at least).

This forum is great for helping you along in the right direction, but we need to understand more about this problem before we can do that.
