Write two different ways of harnessing energy from ocean.

AcademicPhysicsNCERTClass 10

Two ways in which the energy of sea waves can be harnessed are as follows:

1. By setting up floating generators in the sea, which would move up and down with the sea waves. This movement would drive the generators to produce electricity.

2. By letting the sea-waves move up and down inside large tubes so that when the waves move up, the air in the tubes is compressed and this compressed air can be used to turn the turbine of a generator to produce electricity.
