Choose the incorrect statement regarding wind power: (a) It is expected to harness wind power to maximum and not minimum in open spaces (b) The source of wind power is the potential energy content of the wind blowing at high altitudes (c) The rotation of the blades is possible when the wind hits them (d) Wind energy is used in running the turbine of an electric generator

The correct option is (a) It is expected to harness wind power to maximum and not minimum in open spaces.

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.

  • Wind energy is free, and with modern technology, it can be captured efficiently.
  • Once the wind turbine is built, its energy does not cause greenhouse gases or other pollutants.
  • Wind turbines have a role to play in both the developed and third world.
