1  Lesson 2 How is light produced?

2 What light is VS. What light isn’t WHAT LIGHT ISWHAT LIGHT ISN’T Light is bright rays.Light isn’t dark. Light is a type of matter, something like plasma. Light isn’t solid. Light is streams of invisible, tiny particles, like radiation. Light isn’t made up of matter because we can’t feel it. Light is a beam of energy.

3 Sources of Light LUMINOUSREFLECTED LightbulbMirrors FireRoad signs LightningMovie screen Glow sticksMoon Luminous means these objects can produce or give out their own light

4 Energy  Energy is the capacity to do work  Work is done when a force moves an object  Light is a form of energy – electromagnetic energy  The Law of Conservation of Energy – energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change from one form to another

5 Forms of Energy  Electromagnetic (Light)  Electrical  Thermal (heat)  Mechanical  Nuclear  Chemical energy  Gravitational energy

6 Potential Energy  Potential = Stored energy  Gravitational energy – energy an object has because of its position; anything “up high”  Chemical energy – energy stored in a substance  Fuel  Batteries  Food  Nuclear energy – energy stored in the nucleus of an atom  Sun

7 Kinetic Energy  Kinetic energy = energy in motion  Mechanical (motion) energy – movement of objects of substances from one place to another  Electrical energy – electricity moving through an object  Electromagnetic – energy that travels in waves  Light  Thermal (heat) energy – vibration of atoms to make heat  Friction

9 Energy Transformations  Example 1: Toaster plugged into an outlet  Electrical  Thermal  Example 2: Plugging a fan into an outlet  _______________  _________________ and _______________  Example 3: Wind turbine to light  _______________  _________________ and _______________

10 Now that we’ve practiced…  What energy transformations took place in the flashlight and the candle?  Flashlight:  Candle:
