Ch 13

2 Semester Science Exam

Define Energy. Ability to do work or cause change.
What is the SI unit for energy? Joules (J)
Kinetic Energy (KE) depends on what two things? Mass and velocity
Which has a greater effect on KE: Mass or velocity? Why? Vecocity, because velocity is squared. Doubling velocity will quadruple its kinetic energy.
Potential energy (PE) depends on what two things? An object's position and shape.
Gravitational potential energy (GPE) is energy due to __________ and ________. Weight and height.
GPE depends on what two things? Weight and height.
What is elastic potential energy? Give an example. Potential energy associated with objects that can be stretched or compressed. Ex. bow string.
What does it mean for energy to be transformed? Give an example. When energy changes from one form to another, like burning gas in a car transforms chemical energy to mechanical energy.
What is the law of conservation of energy? No energy is destroyed or lost when energy changes to another form.
What does Einstein have to do with the law of conservation of energy? Einstein discovered that matter can be transformed to energy. Therefore in some situations, energy alone is not conserved.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
