rotational energy

[rō′tā·shən·əl ′en·ər·jē]
(mechanics)
The kinetic energy of a rigid body due to rotation.
(physical chemistry)
For a diatomic molecule, the difference between the energy of the actual molecule and that of an idealized molecule which is obtained by the hypothetical process of gradually stopping the relative rotation of the nuclei without placing any new constraint on their vibration, or on motions of electrons.

In other words, Movarc cycles transform mid & Low-heat resources (industrial waste-heat or biogas) into energy at higher efficiency than current technologies including organic rankine cycles, Kalina cycles, And supercritical co2 cycles.the lineal work generated by movarc is translated into rotational energy (via the patented transmission gear) and captured by a commercial electromagnetic generator to produce electricity.
Regardless, installations are slowly becoming more prevalent.<br />Wind power harnesses the natural force of wind speed from lakes and mountain locations using turbines to convert mechanical rotational energy into electricity.
On May 7, 2018, the Federal Court of Canada ruled in favor of Bauer Hockey, stating "that none of the MIPS 542 Patent's claims are infringed by Bauer's RE-AKT and RE-AKT 100 helmets, and that those helmets use a different technology to reduce the rotational energy transmitted to the brain by a rotational impact." This is a successful milestone demonstrating the company's long-standing commitment to both its own research and development and approach to defend patents and technologies.
In terms of this author's alternative kinetic theory, the above stated total kinetic energy consists of the gas' translational plus its rotational energy [1].
Our concern here is with the rotational energy or term values of diatomic molecules, as prototypical of general free molecules, in electronic states of class [sup.1][SIGMA]; the notation for electronic states of other classes can be modified in an appropriate manner.
&nbsp;The researchers think that the escaping matter makes it out thanks to accelerated rotational energy.
The reasoning goes something like this: If the two black holes were spinning exactly aligned with the axis of their orbit, they would have needed to shed some of the system's total rotational energy before they could merge.
Two bicycle sprockets are used as pinions and interlocked with the chains to convert the linear energy to rotational energy.
Atropisomers occur when rotation around a C-C single bond is hindered by the rotational energy barrier.
Operating like a hydrodynamic ram, the ARX bullet compresses the fluid-filled tissue ahead of it and creates a temporary cavity as it dumps rotational energy into the tissue.
Continued melting is facilitated by the compression or declining channel depth of the screw, which brings the solids nearer the barrel wall to create a renewed region of viscous polymer, where shear changes the mechanical or rotational energy into heat in the polymer.
