Our Design
REPLACE WITH WORDS ABOUT YOUR WINDMILL DESIGN

Our Experiment
REPLACE WITH DESCRIPTION OF YOUR EXPERIMENT

Results
EDIT WITH YOUR VALUES
Reading 1 Current [ 5.1] mA
Reading 2 Current [ 4.3] mA
Reading 3 Current [ 5.9] mA
Reading 4 Current [ 6.1] mA
Average Current = [ 5.35 ] mA
Windspeed at fan = [s ] ms-1
Resistance = [ 100 ] Ohms
Power = I * I * R (remember to convert mA to A) 2.86

So with a windspeed of [s ] our turbine generates an average current of [I ] mA delivering [P ] (convert W to mW) mW per second so in 10 minutes it could generate [P * 600 ] mW.

If playing music on an iPod classic consumes about 77mW per second, 10 minutes of turbine time (assuming 100% energy transfer efficiency) can power [ 22.3 ] seconds of playback time, enough to listen to about [ 0.1 ] 3 minute songs.

Thoughts
REPLACE THIS WITH YOUR THOUGHTS: HOW COULD YOUR WINDMILL BE IMPROVED, HOW COULD THE EXPERIMENT BE IMPROVED, IS 100% EFFICIENCY ENERGY TRANSFER REALISTIC, WHAT WOULD YOU ASK AN EXPERT, HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT SCIENCE TEACHING AND LEARNING, ETC...
