How do you solve for Power, P?
front
Watt
back
A unit of Power equivalent to Joules/second.
front
Horsepower
back
A unit of Power nominally equivalent to how much work a horse can do.
front
Hydraulic Turbine
back
This machine, also known as a simple water wheel, converts potential energy of water into rotational kinetic energy.
front
Steam Turbine
back
This machine converts the energy of high-pressure steam into electricity using pressure differentials and rotating blades.

How do you solve for the Energy Efficiency of a machine?
front
Gas Turbine
back
A machine driven by expanding hot gases produced by burning fuel, as in a truck engine.
front
Centrifugal Pump
back
A machine used to transport fluids by converting rotational kinetic energy to hydrodynamic energy. This process is supported by the use of a part called an impeller.
front
Centrifugal Compressor
back
A machine used to compress air (and thus increase gas pressure) by pushing air outward from its axis of rotation using blades.
