His physical vitality—his faculties of free energy, endurance, elasticity—was a superb endowment to begin with.
But Forrester blocked it; the splatter of free energy struck at the nearby trees, sending them crashing to the ground.
Set up a topological relation that drained all the free energy out of the system.
Thus the electromotive force is equal to the change of this free energy per electrochemical equivalent of reaction in the cell.
The people there also liked the idea of cooking with the sun's free energy!
Although energy in abundance is still present, there is no longer any energy capable of change, or free energy.
One feels behind it the fine and free energy of a creative spirit.
No wonder they hung around Durval's machines sucking up what free energy they could.
free energy n.
A thermodynamic quantity that is the difference between a system's internal energy and the product of its absolute temperature and entropy; the portion of total energy of a natural system that can be used for work.
|free energy |
A thermodynamic quantity that is the difference between the internal energy of a system and the product of its absolute temperature and entropy. Free energy is a measure of the capacity of the system to do work. If its value is negative, the system will have a tendency to do work spontaneously, as in an exothermic chemical reaction. Free energy is measured in kilojoules per mole. Also called Gibbs free energy.
