Equiangular polygons have all angles congruent; equilateral polygons have all sides congruent. (02:58)
Wind Energy Basics
This video provides an overview of the National Wind Technology Center and its research. "We have been harnessing the wind's energy for hundreds of years. From old Holland to farms in the United States, windmills have been used for pumping water or grinding grain. Today, the windmill's modern equivalent—a wind turbine—can use the wind's energy to generate electricity." (05:49)
