# At a certain location, wind is blowing steadily at 8 m/s. Determine the mechanical energy of air per unit mass

## Question:

At a certain location, wind is blowing steadily at 8 m/s. Determine the mechanical energy of air per unit mass and the power generation potential of a wind turbine with 50-m-diameter blades at that location. Also determine the actual electric power generation assuming an overall efficiency of 30 percent. Take the air density to be 1.25 kg/m^{3}.
