Expert Solution
To determine

Four different types of Energy conversion.

Explanation of Solution

Some examples are as follows:

Thermoelectric (Heat → Electric energy): In this energy conversion available heat energy convert into electrical energy. Thermocouple is a device that convert heat energy into electrical energy and vice versa. When voltage applied to thermocouple, heat is transferred from one side to the other. Thermocouple produce voltage when there is a temperature difference on each side. This effect used to measure temperature difference or voltage difference. Thermocouple is used as temperature controllers.

Geothermal power (Heat → Electric energy): A massive heat energy is available inside the earth that is used to create electrical energy...
