What is Energy?
Use to help study for your quiz on What is Energy?
|Kinetic Energy Formula||Kinetic Energy = Mass x Speed^2|
|Gravitational Potential Energy Formula||Gravitational Potential Energy = Weight x Height|
|Energy||Energy is the ability to do work and cause a change.|
|Joules||The measure of work and energy.|
|Transferred energy||When you do work on an object, some of your energy is _________________________ to that object.|
|Power||Power is the rate at which work is done and energy is transferred.|
|Potential Energy||the energy that results from the position or shape of an object|
|Elastic Potential Energy||the energy created by something that is being compressed or stretched. Like a rubber band being stretched.|
|Kinetic Energy||the energy an object has due to its motion. Mass and speed will affect this energy.|
|Affect Kinetic energy||Speed has a greater affect then mass.|
|Gravitational Potential Energy||the energy related to the height of an object. Like a person on top of a mountain.|
