8.1.1. State that thermal energy may be completely converted to work in a single process, but that
continuous conversion of this energy into work requires a cyclical process and the transfer of some
energy from the system.
8.1.2. Explain what is meant by degraded energy.

Degraded energy: energy that has become less useful, i.e. cannot perform mechanical work due to
being transformed into other forms of energy, e.g. thermal energy.

8.1.3. Construct and analyze energy flow (Sankey) diagrams and identify where the energy is
degraded.
8.1.4. Outline the principal mechanisms involved in the production of electrical power.
Electrical energy may be produced by rotating coils in a magnetic field.
