Choose the incorrect statement regarding wind power (a) It is expected to harness wind power to minimum in open space (b) The potential energy content of wind blowing at high altitudes is the source of wind power (c) Wind hitting at the blades of a windmill causes them to rotate The rotation thus achieved can be utilised further (d) One possible method of utilising the energy of rotational motion of the blades of a windmill is to run the turbine of an electric generator

Answer: (b) The potential energy content of wind blowing at high altitudes is the source of wind power

Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into mechanical or electrical energy using wind turbines to make electrical power, windmills for mechanical power, windpumps for water pumping or drainage, or wind sails to propel steer sailboats. To generate wind power, we require wind at a very high speed. Due to this motion, it possesses kinetic energy, and as such, they are capable of doing mechanical work under its motion.
