Build a realistic wind turbine to harness power out of thin air. Wind is oneof the most promising sources of clean, renewable energy available today. Windenergy has been used for centuries to pump water and crush grain in windmills,and is increasingly being used to generate electricity to power our modernworld. Assemble a wind turbine complete with electric generator and adjustablerotor blades. The blades are designed with complex aerodynamic curves to lookand work like modern-day wind turbine blades. Conduct experiments with yourwind turbine, including experiments to optimize its performance by adjustingthe angle of the blades. Use the wind turbine to light up an LED and charge arechargeable battery. Convert the wind turbine into an electric fan by usingthe electric generator as a motor. Build three additional models with theparts included. During the experiments, you will learn the physics of forceand motion as it applies to wind power technology. Learn how to measure andcalculate the different forces acting on the rotor blades by breaking themdown into vectors. Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing us with anendless source of energy. Read about different types of wind turbines andwindmills, and how wind energy can be used to power homes and electric cars.The full-color, 32-page manual offers illustrated instructions and scientificinformation.
