Plant Biomass - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Plant biomass (W) is the weight of living plant material contained above and below a unit of ground surface area at a given point in time. Production is the biomass or weight of organic matter assimilated by a community or species per unit land area per unit time. Production by photosynthetic organisms, i.e. primary production, may be expressed in two ways.

Steam engine - Wikipedia

A steam engine is a heat engine that performs mechanical work using steam as its working fluid.The steam engine uses the force produced by steam pressure to push a piston back and forth inside a cylinder. This pushing force is transformed, by a connecting rod and flywheel, into rotational force for work.The term "steam engine" is generally applied only to reciprocating engines as just
