Embed code for: Geothermal Energe Report by Coco Joanne Toby Jane 10D
Select a size
Our topic is Geothermal. We research online and found Geothermal is thermal energy generated and stored in the Earth. Because that fills the fractures and pores within the rock, it also is the thermal energy contained in the rock and fluid in the earth's crust. .Thermal energy is the energy that determines the temperature of matter. The geothermal energy of the Earth's crust originates from the original formation of the planet and from radioactive decay of materials.
What can geothermal energy do? We found that Geothermal heat pump is used Geothermal energy to work ， Generate electricity and hot spring are also used Geothermal to work.
So we decided make a hot spring resort. This resort is near a extinct volcano, and we utilize the heat of underground magma can make water become hot spring this theory to made model. Because it is a extinct volcano so this resort is very safety, and also have hotel in this resort, so we utilize geothermal heat pump to keep the room warm, it will make people feel relaxed. Of course around the hot spring we need light, so we utilize volcano heat generate electricity.
Statement of the problem:
How many water should we use? If we use so many water, the box under the model will broke, because water is so heavy. So we come up a idea to solve this problem..Do not use hot melt ahensive
When we make this model, we must keep the environment clean
The materials that we use are not very expensive, and we need full use of integrated materials.
During the project, we need to take photo, and record
We need try our best to make this project beautiful and real.
Jane: Volcanic activity has created thermal spring and boiling mud pools, people used to go to special health spring to recover from tuberculosis. And hot water bath he repeated
Joanne: Geothermal, as the name suggests, uses the Earth's potential to preserve heat under the surface and water bodies. The system of geothermal heating would use the landmass as a heat exchanger, to both, heat and cool a building. It has used been from earlier times as a method of heating ancient structures, which included spas. At times, hot water streams and geysers are also a source of geothermal energy. Geothermal heating is only possible where the resources are available. There has been upgradations in technology, and the science of geothermal heating is utilized in heating and cooling. But now, it is done with the help of a geothermal heat pump.It is a renewable source of energy, as it is constantly replenished by rainfall and heat
Toby: Direct geothermal energy. In areas where hot springs or geothermal reservoirs are near the Earth's surface, hot water can be piped in directly to heat homes or office buildings. Geothermal water is pumped through a heat exchanger, which transfers the heat from the water into the building's heating system. The used water is injected back down a well into the reservoir to be reheated and used again.
Coco: The heat from the earth's own molten core can be converted into electricity. This core consists primarily of extremely high temperature liquid rock known as magma. This "geothermal" heat circulates within the rock or is transferred to underground reservoirs of water, which also circulate under the earth's crust. Because of the near limitless ability of the earth to produce magma, and the continuous transfer of heat between subsurface rock and water, geothermal energy is considered a renewable resource. So I want to utilize the geothermal power to generate electricity.
Materials to be used
Model street lamp
Model flowering shrubs
Design and Develop
Cut the KT board,make it shape like island.
Cut the simulation grass, and type it onto the KT board.
Cut down the plastic bottle bottom to make a spring pond. And put the stone to surround it.
Use the paper and plastic bottle cap to make house.
Stick the house and the simulation tree on the simulation grass. And stick the stone around the simulation grass.
Coloring the KT board. Make it look like sea.
Cut the styrofoam, make it shape look like volcano.
Printing the volcano.And stick it on the KT board.
Make a electric circuit.
Use the KT board and plastic tube to
Refine ： In the beginning,we just want to use model to express the principle of geothermal,but we refined this thinking,we make electric circuit to simulate this theory.But we can't make a real component to emit heat,so we use battery to instead of the geothermal,thus give out light.eed light, so we utilize volcano heat generate electricity.
