How do you store Kinetic Energy or use it to power something?
Say I wanted to hook a manual treadmill up to a lightbulb or even a little more adventurous a TV, would it be possible to power it? also is it easily financed and available to the average person? On another tangent, how would you go about storing the kinetic energy, perhaps into a battery or some other storing unit.
Kinetic energy is the energy of motion and the label of potential energy is stored and when an object is moved into a position, such as a roller coaster that is pushed upward by levers and at the top released, forming kinetic energy at its dropping and rolling down the rails.So potential energy is that derived by movement into a position that later promotes kinetic energy. To pick up a bale of hay and hold it is potential energy that later becomes kinetic energy when the bale is dropped into a truck. Gasoline is a form of potential and stored energy and becomes kinetic energy when it is burned in engines. A battery stores energy in its cells and when it is used to power a light bulb or small engine, kinetic energy comes into play. a treadmill can be used to transfer human energy via a belt that powers a small generator sending electric energy to a circuit that is stored in a battery and used for power.Many are on the market and sell for reasonable amounts.
Cheers for the education recommend any particular brand that is on the market for a reasonable amount?
Awesome practical physics lesson! Glad you took the time to explain it all!
I'm wondering how Seko's kinetic watches work. The movement of the watch keeps the clock going. And how this same theory could be applied to say a cell phone battery.

What is the rotational kinetic energy of the earth?

1. I agree with suggestion - this is a hub not a question.2. I think most of the energy we "use" could be conserved- so rather then USE green energy, we need to design or plan our energy consumption to...
