Wood is a renewable energy source but it is not replenished quickly enough to be an important fuel today. A cord of wood is 128 ft3 (80 Â 40 Â 40 ) of stacked firewood. It is not recognized as a legal measure. A cord contains about 72 ft3 of solid wood or about 4,300 lb to which must be added about 700 lb of bark or a total of about 5,000 lb, varying with the wood and its moisture content. The thermal energy of wood is from 8,000 to 9,000 Btu/lb. It has been argued that biomass used for fuel is not practicable because it displaces land which could be used for agriculture—a most essential requirement of man whose nutritional demands are continuously increasing.

2) Photogalvanic cells usually consist of electrodes which are semiconductors and a solution which can undergo a redox reaction. The band gap of the semiconductor must match the energy of the redox reaction before the cell can function. Light absorbed by the electrodes promotes electrons from the valence band to the conduction band where they migrate to the surface (in n-type semiconductors) where reaction with the electrolyte can occur. This is shown in Fig. 11 for the system in which two photochemically active semiconductor electrodes are used, one in which the p-type oxidizes Fe(II) to Fe(III): Fe2þ !
