Energy Review

Eric Energy

the bending of light as it passes from one material to another refraction
when light bounces back after striking an object reflection
objects let all light pass through them so objects on the other side can be seen clearly transparent
do not let any light pass through them opaque
objects let some light through, but not all light translucent
lenses refract light and make objects look larger convex
lenses refract light and make objects look smaller concave
does not allow thermal energy to pass through them easily insulators
allow thermal energy to pass through them easily conductor
energy that is stored in an object, not in motion, but capable of moving, a parked car on hill, a coiled spring, charged battery potential energy
energy possessed by a body because of its motion, car going down a hill, bowling ball striking pins kinetic energy
energy of motion mechanical
also known as heat energy thermal energy
energy produced when an object vibrates sound energy
you hear because what vibrates eardrum
travels in a straight line light
the average speed of particles in a substance, measured in Celsius or farenheit temperature
form of energy that travels in waves and can move through empty space where there is no air light energy
