“How can we convert electricity into heat using a machine?”

 

When designing heating systems, we often need a quick, efficient, and non-pollutive way to generate heat. So how can we use our engineering mindset to accomplish this? Well, let’s first think back to our scientific knowledge. We know that we can make heat from electricity by passing it through a resistive element. So what if we were to implement this in a mechanical system using real life technology? Well, this type of object is known as a heating element and is used for thermal appliances such as radiative heaters.
