Transcript of Law of Conservation of Energy

Law of Conservation of Energy
Superheroes fall into many categories depending on their powers (or lack of it) and skills and use of gadgets if any. Now lets consider those with actual super powers unlike those emulated using high tech gadgetry (like Iron Man or Batman or Steel).

So there are two main questions: (1) where does the energy come from?

(2) When the superhero uses this energy to perform a task, where does it go?

If Energy Cannot be Destroyed..
If energy cannot be destroyed... What happens to it?
How did this happen?
Kinetic energy can be defined as energy that is in motion. As for potential energy, it is the energy that is generated while the object is still at rest. Anything that is in motion, for example a rolling ball, has kinetic energy. As for potential energy, an example of this is a compressed spring.
The Law of Conservation of Energy

The law of conservation of energy states that energy may neither be created nor destroyed.
It Transforms!
Energy transformation or energy conversion: is the process of changing one form of energy to another.
Energy of motion

Potential: An object can store energy as the result of its position. For example, the heavy ball of a demolition machine is storing energy when it is held at an elevated position. This stored
energy of position
is referred to as potential energy.

Forms of Energy
Mechanical Energy
Mechanical: It is the energy associated with the motion and position of an object.
Electromagnetic Energy

Electromagnetic: Light or Sound Energy
Thermal Energy
Heat Energy
Nuclear Energy
Energy from fission and fusion

Fission: splitting of the nucleus of an atom- Bad

Fussion: Combing of the nucleus of an atom- GOOD

What is Energy
power from the using of physical or chemical resources, esp. to provide light and heat or to work machines
Chemical Energy
Energy formed from a chemical reaction
