1 CONSERVATION OF ENERGY KINETIC POTENTIALMECHANICAL
2 ENERGY the ability to change or move matter Law of Conservation of Energy: energy cannot be created or destroyed! (It can only change form!)electrical heat + light
3 KINETIC ENERGY . . . IS MOVEMENT! Examples:Of electrons: ELECTRICAL ENERGYOf electromagnetic waves:RADIANT ENERGY (x-rays, UV,radio waves, microwaves, etc.)Of heat: THERMAL ENERGYOf a moving object:MECHANICAL ENERGY
4 CALCULATING KE: KE = mv2 mass = kg 2 velocity = m/s KE = Joules (J) EQUATION: UNITS:KE = mv mass = kg2 velocity = m/sKE = Joules (J)On your formula chart you will see this as :Kinetic Energy = ½ (mass × velocity2)
5 SAMPLE PROBLEM:What is the [kinetic energy] of a 44 kg cheetah running at 31 m/s?G m = 44 kg, v = 31 m/sU KE = ?E KE = (mv2)/2S KE = (44 kg)(312 m2/s2)/2S KE = 21,142 J
6 POTENTIAL ENERGY . . . IS STORED OR POSITIONAL! Examples:In batteries: ELECTRICAL ENERGYIn bonds: CHEMICAL ENERGY(fossil fuels, glucose)In an atom’s nucleus:NUCLEAR ENERGYIn machines: ELASTIC ENERGY (springs, rubber bands)Of position (height): GRAVITATIONAL
7 CALCULATING GPE: (Gravitational Potential Energy) Your Formula Chart shows the formula for GPE as:Gravitational potential energy = mass x acceleration due to gravity x heightEQUATION: UNITS:GPE = mgh mass = kgacceleration due to gravity = g = 9.8 m/s2height = mWeight = mg Weight = NewtonsGPE = Joules
8 SAMPLE PROBLEM: G m = 2.0 kg, h = 12 m U GPE = ? E GPE = mgh What is the GPE of a 2.0 kg rock that sits on the edge of a cliff 12 m high?G m = 2.0 kg, h = 12 mU GPE = ?E GPE = mghS GPE = (2.0 kg)(9.8 m/s2)(12 m)S GPE = J
9 MECHANICAL ENERGY Equals the TOTAL energy in a system! Is the sum of the PE and the KE.ME = KE + PEGradually decreasesbecause of friction(lost as heat).
10 Mechanical Energy in a Swinging Pendulum 1. At which point(s) is KE greatest? Why?2. At which point(s) is PE greatest? Why?MAX PEMAX PEMAX KE1. #3; the faster it moves, the greater its KE.2. #1, #5; the higher it is, the greater its PE.
11 If there is no loss of energy due to friction, the total (mechanical) energy remains the same! The KE and PE of a roller coaster changes as it travels down the track, depending on its speed and height.

14 Forms of Energy and Energy Transformation Part 2Forms of Energy and Energy Transformation
15 Forms of Energy Six forms of energy are: Mechanical Energy Heat Energy Electromagnetic EnergyChemical EnergyRadiant EnergyNuclear Energy15
16 Energy Transformation Energy is always changing from one form to another.The Sun, primary source of energy on the Earth.Nearly all energy comes from the sun.Energy cannot be created or destroyed. (AKA: Law of Conservation of Energy)16
17 The Flow of EnergyThe Sun,NuclearEnergyThe Sun gives off Radiant energy in the form of lightEarthEnergy received by the Earth is converted into heat and chemical energy.17
18 The Flow of EnergyPlants convert light (radiant energy) into chemical energy (sugar or glucose) through a process called Photosynthesis.When light from the Sun hits the Earth the radiant energy is transformed into heat energy.18
19 Energy Transformation There are many examples of energy transformations. Give an example for each arrow in the following diagram.ElectromagneticRadiantNuclearMechanicalHeatChemical19
