Convection The movement cause within a fluid by the tendency of hotter and therefore less dense material to rise, and colder, denser material to sink under the influence of gravity, which consequently results in transfer of heat.
Radiation The emission of energy as electromagnetic waves or as moving subatomic particles, especially high energy particles that cause ionization
Friction The resistance that one surface or object encounters when moving over another.
Kinetic Energy Energy that an object has due to its motion.
Alt. Energy Source As solar, wind, or nuclear energy, that can replace or supplement traditional fossil-fuel sources, as coal, oil, and natural gas
Gravity The force that attracts a body toward the center of the earth, or toward any other physical body having mass.
Balanced Forces If two individual forces are of equal magnitude and opposite direction, then the forces are said to be balaned.
Chemical Energy A form of potential energy that is stored in chemical bonds between atoms
Nuclear Energy The potential energy stored in the nuclear of an atom.
Energy Transfer A change from one form of energy to another.
Average Speed Since average speed is the rate position changes average speed =distance traveled/time taken
Fossil Fuels A natural fuel such as coal or gas, formed in the geological past from the remains of living organisms
