but during brownout. fishermen can’t afford buying batteries. Is it beneficial to people? Hypothesis A. Usually. Can wind provide a pressure which the radio needs? B. it is beneficial to people. Some prefer to use batteries like the fisherman who used radio to identify if there’s a typhoon coming. Some also have high payment in their electric bill. Yes. Statement of the problem This study aims to produce a wind powered radio.CHAPTER I Introduction Background of the Study Radio is one of our most important means of communication. This is also a profitable appliance for it was used in acquiring latest news and entertainments regarding on the environmental issues. wind can provide a pressure which the radio needs. So. Yes. B. People on Ships and in Aircraft keep in contact with others on land by using it. Specifically. the first practical use of wireless radio was then called for ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communication and it helped save the lives of thousands of victims of sea disasters. the researchers wanted to produce a radio with the use of wind instead of electricity. electricity cannot be used. Significance of the study This study aspires to achieve cheaper powered technology so that people will have fewer bills in electricity. . Thus. it answers the following questions: A. It can be used using electricity. Some also enjoyed listening to radio programs during their leisure hours. It also helps to conserve energy.

This means that the specified material does not go beyond any groups of function. dynamo and a propeller as main materials.Scope and Delimitation This study only uses radio. electronic studies are covered in this study. . It only goes to what is expected to happen. Thus. to produce an effective wind powered radio that can be compared to a common one.

Radio works by changing sounds or other signals into radio waves. Vo. oil and natural gas. Telephone companies send messages across the ocean radio. In addition. strong winds can whip up great ocean waves that damage ships and flood lands. The most widespread and familiar use of radio is for the form of one-way communication known as broadcasting. and descriptions of sports events. People wake up to clock radios and listen to it while in their automobiles. and advertising. Radio waves travel through the air and through space. The world’s growing demand for energy threatens to exhaust the supply of such fuels as coal. Wind power is the energy associated with the air that moves over Earth’s surface. Wind may blow so slowly and gently that it can hardly be felt or it may blow so fast and hard that it smashes buildings and pushes over large trees. 84. music. wind provides clean. SOURCE: World Book Encyclopaedia 2007 edition Vo. They also go through some solid objects. interviews. and reviews of cultural events. It has many uses in addition to broadcasting. drama.329 . codes and other signals over long distances. Scientists send radio waves into the sky to learn about the weather. news. religious programs. It broadcast feature music. 16: Pp. a form of energy called electromagnetic radiation. People also use radio to communicate far into space. But wind is a renewable energy source that cannot be used up. such as the walls of buildings.CHAPTER II REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE Wind is air moving across Earth’s surface. Radio enables people to send words. It receives changes then back into the original sounds. non -polluting energy. Many people operate amateur radio stations.83. 21: Pp. People in many occupations use radio for two-way wireless communication. discussion.

TESTING In testing. the wires that were being connected from the dynamo were also connected to the battery’s case. an electric fan was used. the dynamo starts to generate.  Lastly.  After that.  Electrical tape was used in connecting the wire to the dynamo for safety.  The case of the battery was disarranged. The propeller starts to turn. PROCEDURE  The wire was connected to the dynamo. the propeller was placed into the dynamo. C. CHAPTER IV RESULTS AND DISCUSSION . the highest possible wind pressure an electric fan can produced.CHAPTER III METHODOLOGY A. MATERIALS  Radio  Dynamo  Propeller  Wire  Electrical tape B. It was set to its full power. As propeller turned. The propeller was faced in front of the electric fan as near as possible.

TABLE 1: TYPES OF RADIO WIND POWER RADIO RADIO THAT USED ELECTRICITY ADVANTAGES    DISADVANTAGES   Not permanent Can’t be used if there is no wind  Less expensive No more payment It just need needs wind to generate Eco-Friendly   Can be used anytime Continuous  Can increase your electric charge Can’t be used if there’s no electricity  RADIO WITH THE USE OF BATTERY  You can bring it anywhere  You have to buy batteries to generate TABLE 1: The table shows the variance between the different types of radio. through this table we could say that the wind powered radio is beneficial rather than those radios that use electricity and battery. . Basing from the table. their advantages and disadvantages are shown. the radio that has more advantage is the wind powered radio.

It just needs wind to generate. We recommend that you use this product for it’s not only beneficial to you but this also eco-friendly. There’s no need for them to use electricity to generate their radio or to buy an expensive batteries. this product is also applicable to those uncivilized places as long as wind is available.CHAPTER V CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION Wind powered radio therefore is beneficial to use especially for those people who lived near the sea. try to use it and you will see the advantageous side of it. .

APPENDIX Communication – sending. energy radiation upon the body (e.g.g. to spread news to speak or perform on radio Amateur – someone who cultivates an activity as a pastime rather than a means of making money Radiation – the act or process of radiating. without any compulsion to hurry Wind power – generates power with the used of wind Threatens – to utter or otherwise indicate a threat to someone to indicate the approach of something unpleasant. giving or exchanging of information. ideas. a method of such the state of exchange Leisure – time when one is free from the need to do any work. the energy in the form of heat and light radiated from an in candescent) Dynamo – a generator of boundless energy Propeller shaft – a shaft that transmits power from the engine to the driving device (e. propeller) of an automobile vehicle . wheels. harmful Exhaust – to use up completely. come to end. to tire out drain of strength Broadcasting – to transmit by radio or television.

the wire was connected to the dynamo. the case of the battery was disarranged. propeller.The researchers conduct a study that aims to produce a radio which is wind powered. We the researcher could say with full confidence that our product is a good accomplishment in the means of communication. This product is highly recommendable in anyways as long as the availability of the wind is good. for a beneficial change in socio-economic aspect. after that the wires that are connected to the dynamo will be connected to the battery case. Second. through this research we can produce a product that can help people around a certain place to be updated on what is happening in their environs. First. This product could change people’s way of living they may see this as good help in their living especially for those who are away from civilization. electric tape and radio. Lastly the propeller was placed into the dynamo. several materials were used such as dynamo. In making the product. .

To our parents who supported us in terms of our financial needs. . to our Heavenly Father who made everything possible. To our persistent mentor who steered us through this efficacious research.ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The researchers would like to thank everyone who supported this research. Principally.
