. What do you mean by degradation of energy? Explain it by taking one example of your daily life.

Best Answer

During the transformation of energy from one form to another desired form, some part of energy is converted to some undesirable form or a part of it is lost to the surroundings due to the friction or radiations which cannot be used for any productive purpose. This is called dissipation of energy or degradation of energy.

Example: When a light bulb glows, a major part of the electrical energy utilised is converted to heat energy while some part is converted to useful light energy.
