For example, I have **2 sensor nodes** __sense__, __treat__, and __transmit data__. The distance between them is **1 meter** and the **initial energy storage** is **9360 J** for each one. My question is:

Is there a method to calculate the needed energy to each operation from the followings:

- Sensing
- treating (comparison between 2 values)
- transmitting

If any one has an idea please tell me about it.

Can you provide a little more information?

- What sensors are you using?

- Are you looking for a general mathematical formula for this?

- Or are you looking for programming architecture?

Sorry i didn't know the necessary informations. OK!, actually it's for my thesis, I want to simulate a new routing protocol with a WSN of 80 nodes, 4 clusters, no mobility, and 1 base station. I use OMNet++ with my own modules.

- There are 2 sensor types:
**Temperature sensors**for the temperature monitoring, and**Electrochemical sensors**for the soil PH and nutritional needs. - Sure! if there is a general mathematical formula so why no, but if there is not, so I hope that you can help me with my case.
- I didn't understand what did you mean with programming architecture, but I use OMNet++ (C++) for this.
