Transcript of energy tranformation

By: Camryn Pictor Energy Transformations What Is an Energy Transformation? Energy Transformation- The process of changing energy from one form to another.

There are many different forms of energy and you transfer from one to another all the time

It even happens when you eat. What are the different forms of Energy - Kinetic energy
- Potential energy
-Mechanical energy
-Chemical energy
-Thermal energy
- Electromagnetic energy
-Electrical energy
- Sound energy
- Nuclear energy Kinetic Energy Kinetic Energy- the energy of motion

Kinetic energy of an object is the energy it posses because of its motion. Potential Energy Potential Energy- is the stored energy of a position that is possessed by an object

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. Chemical Energy Chemical Energy- is a form of potential energy and it is possessed by things such as food, fuels and batteries. Types of Potential Energy Gravitational Potential- is the energy stored in an object as the result of its vertical position or height

Elastic Potential- is the energy stored in elastic materials as the result of their stretching or compressing Mechanical Energy Mechanical Energy- is the sum of energy in a mechanical system, or any group of objects that interact based on basic mechanical principles.

This includes both kinetic and potential energy Thermal Energy Thermal Energy- is generated and measured by heat of any kind

There are many natural sources of thermal energy on Earth, making it an important component of alternative energy.
Electromagnetic Energy Electromagnetic Energy- There are many natural sources of thermal energy on Earth, making it an important component of alternative energy.

This radiation is composed of waves, such as radio waves and visible light, that move at the speed of light in a way that is suggestive of both waves and particles. Electrical Energy Electrical Energy- is the presence and flow of an electric charge

Electrical energy is the result of the interaction of subatomic particles with electromagnetic force. Within an atom, electrons and protons create a charge Sound energy Sound energy- is the energy produced by sound vibrations as they travel through a specific medium Law of Conservation The Law of Conservation states that the total amount of energy in a system remains constant ("is conserved"), although energy within the system can be changed from one form to another or transferred from one object to another. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but it can be transformed. Examples of Energy Transformation Bibliography www.phicsclassroom.com

With each letter tell weather it has more Potential and Kinetic Energy Types of Energy Changing forms of Energy Try another! Mechanical Energy example Can You find the Mechanical Energy
