Is it possible to construct a capacitor capable of storing the energy in lightning, then allowing that energy to flow gradually into the power grid?

Actually, the system of cloud and ground that produces lightning is itself a giant capacitor and the lightning is a failure of that capacitor. Like all capacitors, the system consists of two charged surfaces...

What is the device called in some watches that transforms the kinetic energy created by the watch's motion into energy to help power the watch's battery And how does such a device work — KW, Washington, DC?

As a number of readers have informed me, the watches you're referring to generate electricity that then powers a conventional electronic watch. These electromechanical watches use mechanical work done by wri...

Can magnetic energy be used to power a vehicle?

When you talk about "magnetic energy," you are referring to magnetic potential energy. A potential energy is energy stored in the forces between objects. In the case of magnetic potential energy, that energy...

Can you get electricity or some sort of energy or power from fruit — J, Embrun, Ontario?

The answer is yes, but the method may not be what you had in mind. While it's possible to make a battery by inserting two dissimilar metal strips into the fruit, the battery that results is really powered by...

Do you think that different energy, Petrol and diesel, will ever be replaced by battery power, or similar for?

I'd like to present a round table discussion on this possibility. Keep in mind to ask questions where the batteries are made for electric powered vehicles and how much it costs to replace them.The nickel and...

If space is curved and gravity is not really a force (as per Einstein), how is it that an object can slingshot around a planet and gain kinetic energy Where is the extra energy coming from Which object converts mass to energy; the object or the plane?

When a small object such as a satellite arcs around the back side of forward moving planet, the satellite's speed and energy increase while the planet's speed and energy decrease. The planet has given some o...

How efficient are solar energy cells and windmills in producing energy for everyday use — JJ, San Antonio, TX?

There are several ways to measure their efficiencies. One way is to compare the energy these devices extract from sunlight or from the wind to the electric energy they produce. By that measure, solar cells a...
