Energy Science

Science is a systematized body of knowledge about any department of nature, internal or external to man. The energy science deals with the laws, rules, scientific principles, characteristics, units, measurements, processes etc. about various forms of energy and energy transformations. Science involves experimentation, measurement, mathematical calculations, laws, observations, etc.

Energy science has interface with various sciences. Energy science is the mother science of physics, thermodynamics, electromagnetic, nuclear science, mechanical science, chemical science, bio-sciences etc. Each science deals with some activity. Energy is required for the activities to happen.

Various Energy science:

Energy science is the mother science dealing with motion of particles or objects (microscopic or macroscopic), associated energy transformations and effects, concerning various physical, biological and environmental sciences. The energy science correlates various branches of science from energy point of view.

Biological Sciences: Biological sciences deals with biomass and biological processes. Bio-sciences are concerned with the physical characteristics; life processes of living vegetation and animals on land and in water.

Biomass: Biomass is the matter derived from vegetation and animals. Biomass is a natural non-conventional source of energy and is being given highest priority in recent years. Biomass is the important non-conventional energy for the 21st century.


Various branches of science and technology concerning energy

Chemistry: Chemistry is a science dealing with composition and properties of substances and their reactions to form other products. The chemical reactions are accompanied by the release of thermal energy (exothermic reaction) or absorption of thermal energy (endothermic reaction). Chemical reactions are intermediate energy conversion processes. Many usable energy forms are obtained from chemical reactions. From the past one decade natural gas and petroleum products are most important energy forms in the world.

Electromagnetic: The flow of electrons and electrical charges through a circuit produces associated electromagnetic fields and electrical power. Electromagnetic is a branch of physics dealing with electricity, magnetism and various transformations of other forms of energy (mechanical, thermal, chemical etc.) into electrical energy and vice-versa. Electrical energy is the most superior; efficient, useful form of energy which can be generated, transmitted, distributed, controlled, utilized.

Physics: Physics is a branch of natural science dealing with properties and changes in matter and energy. Physics deals with continuous changes in matter and energy and includes mechanics, electromagnetic, heat, optics, nuclear energy etc. and laws governing the energy transformations.

Thermodynamics: Thermodynamics is a branch of physics deals with transformation of thermal energy into other forms of energy, especially mechanical energy and laws governing the conversions. In energy technologies, thermodynamics plays a dominant role.
