Which is a passive form of solar energy?

A: Distilling

B: Thermosiphon

C: Albedo

D: Greenhouse effect 


Expert Answer

Step 1

Passive form of solar energy - it is a form of solar energy that does not require mechanical power to circulate heat.

In this, structural designs are used that help to absorb solar energy and allow the heat to circulate by natural convection.


Step 2

Green house effect and Thermosiphon ar...
