Sources and Forms of Energy

Harvesting kinetic energy

EnGo converts kinetic energy of moving footsteps and light energy of the Sun to chemical potential energy which is stored in batteries. The chemical potential energy is then converted electrical energy which in turn is converted to light energy to light street lamps!

Playing carrom

  1. Click on a position along the line the striker (seed with a star marking) is on to place the striker.
  2. Drag the striker back and aim to flick the striker in the desired direction. The farther the striker is dragged back, the more energy is used to flick the striker.
  3. The aim of the game is to sink as many seeds (yellow or black, depending on if you are Player 1 or 2) into the 4 holes in each corner of the carrom board.
  4. A game of carrom demonstrates the transfer of kinetic energy – from the player’s fingers, to the striker, to the seeds.
