Transcript of Energy

Energy Transformations and Energy Conservation Energy What is it? The ability to do work
or cause change Energy exists in two states Kinetic Energy Potential Energy The energy an object has
due to its motion Stored energy that results from the shape or position of an object Gravitational Potential
Energy Elastic Potential
Energy energy related to an
object's height

equal to Weight x height associated wtih objects
that can be stretched or
compressed Forms of Energy Thermal
Chemical Nuclear
Mechanical Mechanical Energy The form of energy associated
with the motion and position of
an object. Thermal Energy The total potential and kinetic
energy of the particles in an
object Electrical Energy Chemical Energy Potential energy stored in the
chemical bonds between atoms
in a substance Nuclear Energy Electromagnetic Energy Energy that travels in waves,
such as light and other forms
of radiation Sound Energy Form of energy associated with
the vibration of air particles Energy Transformations a change from one form of
energy to another Necessary when one form of
energy is desired, but another
form is available Transformations between
potential energy and
kinetic energy Energy skate park http://phet.colorado.edu/en/simulation/energy-skate-park Law of Conservation of Energy Energy cannot be created or
