    The given diagrams depict how a machine is used to produce electricity by utilising the power created by waves.

    The whole structure is built very close to the sea shores as to be able to utilise the waves as much as possible.The first step in this process shows how the waves come into the chamber. While the tide is high, the force created by the waves, pushes or channels the air through a metallic column which is set up on a cliff or a sea wall. There is a turbine inside the column. The air causes the turbine to rotate in a clockwise direction. This rotatory mechanical energy is converted to electrical energy. The electricity thus generated does not cause any pollution as it solely relies on the simple nature of the tides. This is used to power various appliances like light bulbs.

    Subsequently, when the waves recede, the air moves back from the atmosphere into the chamber and thus keeps the turbine in motion. As the turbine moves, electricity is produced which is utilised by humans.
