Energy 1002

You know what? I really don’t know if to keep writing this…
Had to search high and low on the net to see what is thought of as a right definition. Just the other time, dealing with inefficiencies in power and energy management was the focus. The idea of fully understanding the concept of energy in itself led to this. What is energy? How come it has to be managed? What does inefficiency in its use mean? What are the consequences of mismanagement or inefficient management? It’s still the same story we’re saying. What is energy?
So if energy is the same capacity to do work that you know, does it mean some have no capacity? Or what type of work are we even talking about? Is that why there is no “work”? Who knows? Maybe… Even if there was a job, what is the capacity to do it? is that energy? All these questions I’m sure are too much if there’s no answer, right? But think about it, google could simply give you an answer, so why are you reading this blog right now? I guess to seek the right question this time. So let’s get at it!
Aside the energy company ads that came up, the first definition that was encountered what quite amazing. Not like it was strange. It only shone in a different light. I guess UV light this time. We’ll talk about light some other time. Don’t get too excited just yet. Okay, so it reads and I quote, “In physics, energy is a property of objects which can be transferred to other objects or converted into different forms. The “ability of a system to perform work” is a common description, but it is difficult to give one single comprehensive definition of energy because of its many forms.”- Wikipedia.
Some pointers, “physics” was used as base study area. it was referred to as a “property”. I guess the undermines the need for management. You all know that fact already. “Transfer” and “conversion” are intricate behaviours of energy. It then describes the common description just as we’ve discussed. What is funny is the acknowledgement that no single definition exists…tada! Even wikipedia had to tell you? Anyways, now you see why this module is important.
It’s time to deal with pointer one. Area of physics. Why physics? Why not chemistry, mathematics, English or Philosophical area definition? Well, it’s simple. The physical realm feels the most impact of energy. Energy, not girls this time, runs the world. (apologies to the female folks)
Ouch! Just passed “my” word limit for the day. I guess you’ve caught on something this time. Next module, Energy 1003 should deal with the pointers and hence throw more light on what energy is really. You can check this out for now. Notice how your mind questions the true definition of energy. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efficient_energy_use.

  1. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed but can be transformed into another form. Physical and spiritual transformation is a function of ENERGY. Get energy and be transformed,hence giving your life a meaning
