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) ... the dam to pass through turbines, converts the water's potential energy into kinetic energy and ultimately into electric energy, whereas the amount of electric energy that ...

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

Crime is naught but misdirected energy. So long as every institution of today, economic, political, social, and moral, conspires to misdirect human energy into wrong channels; so long as most people are out of place doing the things they hate to do, living a life they loathe to live, crime will be inevitable.
Emma Goldman (1869–1940)

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)

Reckoned physiologically, everything ugly weakens and afflicts man. It recalls decay, danger, impotence; he actually suffers a loss of energy in its presence. The effect of the ugly can be measured with a dynamometer. Whenever man feels in any way depressed, he senses the proximity of something “ugly.” His feeling of power, his will to power, his courage, his pride—they decline with the ugly, they increase with the beautiful.
Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
