I'm sorry, I'm sick of nobody knowing anything. A turbine is a rotary device which converts kinetic fluid energy into mechanical energy. This INCLUDES windmills, also known as WIND TURBINES. A moving fluid (steam, air, water, oil, gas) strikes the blades of a turbine which are mounted on a common shaft and causes the shaft to turn. A turbine can be the Francis wheel of a dam's power station, it can be the rotor of a "windmill" at Altamont Pass, it can be the exhaust-driven wheel in your car's turbocharger which spins the compressor, it can be part of a jet engine. Your car's automatic transmission has a turbine in it; the impeller in the torque converter driven by the engine forces oil against the blades of a turbine, causing it to turn and driving the rest of the car's driveline.
Windmills aren't turbines! I'm a sidewalk drunk.

A machine where the kinetic energy of matter is converted to mechanical power by the impulse or reaction of the matter with a series of buckets, paddles, or blades located around the circumference of a wheel or cylinder...... Also, Pianos and Organs are the same shit.
