Law of Conservation of Energy
Transcript of Law of Conservation of Energy
The law states that energy cannot be
. Energy can only change
What is the Conservation of Energy?
So what does this mean?
All energy(ies) are measured in joules, and the
number of joules of energy in a closed system always remains the same.
This means that regardless of how many transformations energy goes through the total number of joules in the system will not change.
So, how is energy conserved?
Changes in energy or energy transformations can only take place in a
A closed system is a group of objects that transfer energy only to
'Get the ball rolling' example
roll a ball across carpet and watch what happens.
Why doesn't the ball keep rolling?
The kinetic energy of the ball transforms into
energy in the
So, lets talk about an example.
Other examples of energy transformations are...
When energy is turned into useful energy, but some energy is always transformed into an unintended form.
The most common unintended form is Heat.
Energy EFFICIENCY is a comparison of the amount of energy
a conversion with the amount of
energy after a conversion.
Some examples of energy efficiency are cars and the home you live in.
