Wind Energy

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Wind energy, abbreviated as E, is the kinetic energy of air in motion.

 

Wind Energy Formula

\(\large{ E = \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \; A \; t \; \rho \; v^3  }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ E }\) = wind energy \(\large{ lbf-ft }\) \(\large{ J }\)
\(\large{ \rho } \)  (Greek symbol rho) = density of air \(\large{ \frac{lbm}{ft^3} }\) \(\large{ \frac{kg}{m^3} }\)
\(\large{ A }\) = rotary area \(\large{ ft^2 }\) \(\large{ m^2 }\)
\(\large{ t }\) = time \(sec\) \(s\)
\(\large{ v }\) = wind speed \(\large{ \frac{ft}{sec} }\) \(\large{ \frac{m}{s} }\)
