Conduction process by which energy is transferred from a warmer object to a cooler object by physical contact
Convection process by which energy is transferred in gases and liquids, occurring when a warmer, less dense area of gas or liquid is pushed up by a cooler, more dense area of the gas or liquid
Heat energy that is transferred from a warmer object to a cooler object
Kinetic energy energy of motion
Law of Conservation of Energy energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another or transferred from one place to another
Potential energy stored energy that an object has due to its position or chemical composition
Radiation process by which energy is transferred through empty space in waves
Energy The ability to do work or cause a change
Transformation a change of energy from one form to another
Transfer a change in energy from one location to another
Fluid a substance that can flow easily, such as a gas or a liquid
Friction a force that resists the motion between two surfaces that are in contact with one another
Mass the amount of matter in an object
Mechanical energy energy that moves objects
Sound energy energy resulting from vibrations of particles in matter; cannot travel through empty space
Effort the amount of force used to move an object over a distance
