when an object stores energy because of its position, shape, or state. the object has the potential to do work potential energy
the energy assocated with a moving body, by virtue of its motion. kinetic energy
the splitting of the nucleus of a heavy atom into two main parts, accompanied by the release of much energy. nuclear fission
the combining of nuclei of light atoms to form heavier nuclei, with the release of much energy. nuclear fusion
probability per second that a given atom will fission spontaneously - that is without any external intervention. spontaneous nuclear fission
sound consists of molecules vibrating in rhythmic patterns: shake a group of molecules that, in turn, disturb others sound
a substance or material which carries the wave medium
originates from the motion of electrons within atoms light
radiant energy exists in the form of electromagnetic waves electromagnetic waves
a wave in which particles of the medium move in a direction perpendicular to the direction which the wave moves. transverse waves
heat is the flow of thermal energy due to a temperature difference heat
a wave can be descrived as a disturbance that travels through a medium from one location to another location wave properties
the range of all possible frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. electromagnetic spectrum
prtoms attract eelctrons and we have atoms. Electrons repel electrons and we have matter - because atoms don't mesh into one another electricity
can both attract and repel without touching, and the strenght of their interaction depends on the distance between them. Regions called magnetic pols give rigse to magnetic forces. magnetism
any path along which electrons can flow is a circuit electric circuits
an electric circuit with two or more devices connected in such a way that the smae voltage acts across each one, and any single one completes the cicuit independently of all the others parallel circuit
an electric circuit with devices connected in such a way that the same electric current exists in all of them series circuit
combination resistive circuits, otherwise known as series-parallel resistive circuits, combine resistors in series with resistors in parallel series-parallel circuit

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.
