physical science energy review

energy due to position or state potential energy (PE)
the total amount of potential and kinetic energy of a system; PE+KE Total Mechanical Energy (TME)
energy due to motion of object or atoms/particles kinetic energy (KE)
If two objects are moving with the same velocity, how would one object have greater kinetic energy? the object would have more mass
mass x g x height is the formula for what? gravitational potential energy (GPE)
1/2 x m x v^2 is the formula for what? kinetic energy (KE)
states that energy cannot be created or destroyed only transformed law of conservation of energy
what form of energy is stored in the bonds that hold atoms together? potential energy (chemical)
what form of energy is stored in the nucleus of an atom? potential energy (nuclear or atomic)
the ability to do work or cause change is what? energy
the movement of energy through matter in longitudinal waves is called what? kinetic energy (sound)
what is the natural FORCE that allows an object to have potential energy? gravity
an object has gravitational potential energy as a result of what TWO variables? mass and acceleration due to gravity (g)
does the GPE of a skier increase or decrease as they go down a mountain? the GPE decreases
when a person jumps on a trampoline, what is the point where potential energy is at its maximum at the top of the jump
what are the units for energy? Joules (J)
the energy in an object due electrical charges (to movement of electrons) kinetic energy (electrical)
gasoline for a car is what type of energy? potential (chemical)
electromagnetic energy that travels through empty space is called what? kinetic energy (radiant or light)
energy due to the random motion of particles in solid, liquid or gas kinetic energy (thermal or heat)
