The amount of power that can be generated by wind is determined by the equation P = 1 2 D × S 3 where P is the power in watts, D is the density, and S is the wind speed in meters per second (m/sec). Because D = 1.293 kg/m 3 , we can rewrite the equation as P = 0.65 × S 3 How much power (in watts) is generated by the following wind speeds: 2 meters per second, 6 meters per second, 10 meters per second, 12 meters per second?

The amount of power that can be generated by wind is determined by the equation

P = 1 2 D × S 3

where P is the power in watts, D is the density, and S is the wind speed in meters per second (m/sec). Because D = 1.293 kg/m3, we can rewrite the equation as

P = 0.65 × S 3

How much power (in watts) is generated by the following wind speeds: 2 meters per second, 6 meters per second, 10 meters per second, 12 meters per second?
