transformation energ

transformation of energy

Transfer or use of energy work
energy in motion kinetic
ability to do work energy
stored energy an object has because of it's postion potential energy
Energy produced by moving electrons electrical energy
energy that occurs when bonds are broken between atoms. energy of a compound that changes as atoms are rearranged. chemical energy
energy resulting from the random motion of molecules thermal energy
energy that occurse when atoms are joined by fusion or split by fission. Changes in the nucleus of an atom. nuclear energy
energy that is a result of light and other forms of radiation which travels in waves electromagnetic energy
energy that involves movement. Involves motion and position of an object mechanical energy
energy that occurs due to a vibrating object transmitting energy through air sound energy
energy is changed from one form to another energy conversion
states that energy can neither by created nor destroyed but changed into different forms energy law of conservation of energy
in electromagnetic energy and sound energy, the energy travels in what? waves
In nuclear energy, when the nucleus of atoms are split, this is called fission
In nuclear energy, when the nucleus of atoms are joined, this is called fusion
kicking a soccer ball is an example of potential or kinetic energy? kinetic
gasin a fuel tank is an example of potential or kinetic energy? potential
a bird flying is an example of potential or kinetic energy? kinetic
a streched rubber band is an example of potential or kinetic energy? potential
Identify the form of energy found in a telephone sound or electrical
Identify the form of energy found in a microwave nuclear
Define energy Stored work (the capactity to do work)
the transfer of energy to an object by using a force that causes the object to move in the direction of the force. WORK
What are the 2 requirements for work to be done Force must be exerted on an object and object must move in the same direction as force
Total kinetic energy of a substance thermal energy
a beaker of water will continue to lose heat until it reaches room temperature thermal equilibrium
when two object touching each other reach the same temperature they have reached thermal equilibrium
Heat transfer only occurs from: warmer objects to colder objects
transfer of heat energy by electromagnetic waves through empty space is called radiation
When heat is being transferred between two objects the objects have --------- temperature different
temperature at which matter no longer moves absolute zero
transfer of thermal energy through a substance by direct contact conduction
transfer of heat by the movement of particles in a liquid or gas convection
Weather in the US uses what scale fahrenheit
measure of the average kinetic energy of all the particles in an object tempertature
Scientist use what scale to measure absolute zero kelvin
movement of thermal energy from warmer to cooler object is called heat
