Unfortunately, the global trend is to increase emissions, despite rising awareness and international efforts to address the looming threat of climate change. S. 5% per year. By the way, in case you are wondering why experts refer to “carbon” as seemingly synonymous with greenhouse gas emissions, it’s because carbon dioxide makes up roughly 98% of the greenhouse gas emissions from the electric power sector (coal plants account for more than 80% of the releases from that industry). 45 kg) less carbon dioxide per hour of use than a conventional system.

By the way, this concept sometimes requires a hands-on approach to understand completely, so please don’t feel too badly if it doesn’t completely make sense. No matter how hot the water is in the hose, when you spray it out, it will be a cool mist after just a few inches of travel through the air. This cooling effect is called the latent heat removal of vaporization, or just evaporation. In the refrigeration circuit, the process is controlled, and the vapors are recovered and carried through the tubing of the evaporator to the compressor.

This is the warm feeling of the Sun on your face or the burning sensation you may feel when standing close to a heater with glowing red elements. This sensation is the same as the flash of heat you would feel if you were near an explosion. As soon as the source goes away, the heat is gone. The only reason that any of the heat from the Sun stays around at night is because of the thermal retention properties of the atmosphere, the Earth, and surrounding objects. Radiation F IGURE 2-3 At a campfire, the girl’s face and hands are warmed by radiant heat.
