Intro to . . . Energy

Energy is the ability to cause change.

law of conservation of energy
Terms to Know potential energy kinetic energy transformations law of conservation of energy temperature thermal energy heat radiation conduction convection chemical energy

Transformations A change of energy from one form to another.
For example . . .

Exploding fireworks are a transformation of chemical energy into thermal and light energy.

Kinetic Energy Energy of movement Depends on mass and speed
Potential Energy Energy of position Depends on where it is in relation to gravity, magnetism, or some other force vs.

LAW OF CONSERVATION OF ENERGY
Energy is neither created nor destroyed; it only changes form

Total Kinetic Energy of the particles in a material
Thermal Energy Total Kinetic Energy of the particles in a material

TEMPERATURE HEAT Transfer Measure of of Thermal Kinetic energy energy
VS. Transfer of Thermal energy Measure of Kinetic energy

How Thermal Energy Moves . . .

Chemical Energy Endothermic Exothermic

Energy changing from one form to another is called a
A: translocation B: transformation C: transportation D: transfer

A: only available when a force acts on an object.
