Fuel Economy-maximizing Behaviors - Basic Techniques - Coasting or Gliding
... Coasting dissipates stored energy (kinetic energy and gravitational potential energy as aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance) which must always be overcome by ... If coasting uphill, stored energy is also expended by grade resistance, but this energy is not dissipated since it becomes stored as gravitational potential energy which might be used ... Using stored energy (via coasting) for these purposes is obviously more efficient than dissipating it in friction braking ...
Classifying Hazards
... One key concept in identifying a hazard is the presence of stored energy that, when released, can cause damage ... Stored energy can occur in many forms chemical, mechanical, thermal, radioactive, electrical, etc ... class of hazard does not involve release of stored energy, rather it involves the presence of hazardous situations ...

Famous quotes containing the words energy and/or stored:

    The very presence of guilt, let alone its tenacity, implies imbalance: Something, we suspect, is getting more of our energy than warrants, at the expense of something else, we suspect, that deserves more of our energy than we’re giving.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)

    Health can be squandered, but not stored up.
