State any four differences between thermal and solar energy.
1.Thermal enegy is a conventional source of energy.
2. Solar energy is a non - conventional source of energy .
3. Thermal energy is a polluting souce since it is produced by burning coal .
4. Solar energy is a non-polluting source of energy.
5.Solar energy is inexhaustible.
6. Thermal energy is exhaustible.
Solar energy is the energy that comes out from the sun’s rays, while thermal
energy is he energy produced from heat. Solar energy is from the sun is very
useful for life on earth. It feeds animals; humans convert this energy and use
them in different activities.
We can use solar energy in two different ways i.e. heat source, and as an
energy source. While thermal energy is a source of energy produced from heat.
Thermal Energy is discussed only in temperature only and solar energy can be
measured in watts, intensity (candela) or illumination (lumen).
We can make use of the solar energy to produce thermal energy, this energy is
called solar thermal energy it is basically harnessing the suns light to produce
