200
What is because during energy production certain pollutants can be released that can poison land, water, and air?
Why do some emissions have a harmful impact on the environment?
300
What is turbine?
Steam flows through a ____________ which spins as the gas flows and changes the heat energy of the steam into kinetic energy
