Wind Energy by Mind Map: Wind Energy

1. Wind is a form of solar energy

1.1. How wind is a form of solar energy is that Wind is caused by the uneven heating of the air by the sun, the irregularities of earth's surface, and rotation of the earth.

2. Wind Turbines are like airplane propellers

2.1. Wind turbines are like airplane propellers they turn in the moving air and power an electric generator that supplies an electricity simply stated, a wind turbine is the exact opposite of a fan. Instead of using electricity to make wind fan a wind turbines use wind to make electricity. Wind turns the blades, which spin a shaft that is connected to a generator and makes electricity.

3. What is wind energy?

3.1. Wind power is the ability to make electricity using the air flows that occur naturally in the earth’s atmosphere. Wind turbine blades capture kinetic energy from the wind and turn it into mechanical energy, spinning a generator that creates electricity.
