Zero-point energy is the lowest energy that any quantum mechanical physical system can possibly have. Otto Stern and Albert Einstein developed the concept in Germany in 1913. More » Science Physics Motion & Mechanics

A zero point module is a device in the "Stargate" fictional universe that generates a virtually unlimited amount of power by harnessing zero point energy (the inexhaustible amount of power that inherently exists in any g... More » Art & Literature

According to Dr. Ray Batina of Washington State University, zero economic profit is the profit maximization point. At this point, price is equal to marginal cost. This scenario only applies to a perfectly competitive mar... More »

Elastic energy is the potential energy stored in a material or physical system as the volume or shape is distorted. When objects are stretched or compressed, elastic energy is stored, according to the Physics Classroom. More »

When a light switch is turned on, electrical energy runs through the wires and is transferred to the bulb where electrical energy is converted to light and heat energy. This is an example of energy transfer. When a bowli... More »

A Venturi pump uses the kinetic energy in a fast-moving fluid to move another liquid or semi-liquid substance. These pumps are abundant in sewage treatment plants because they reliably move large volumes of thick, hetero... More »

Albert Einstein's formula "E=mc2" means energy equals the mass of an object multiplied by the speed of light squared. His theory means that the mass of an object, no matter how small, can be transformed into a tremendous... More »
